Spoon (Blockchain)

A hard spoon is a meta-protocol that exists on top of a blockchain, essentially creating a new blockchain with tokens that inherit the original blockchain’s token balances. A spoon, like a fork, can be hard or soft, although the implementations of spoons thus far have been hard, i.e. the 2018 Tendermint hard spoon. While a hard spoon has no competition with the underlying blockchain, a soft spoon would compete as a branch of a protocol within the same blockchain. * See Fork.
