What does it all mean?

Well, simply put, a hard fork means that the nodes have to upgrade to a new client. Whereas in a soft fork, they’re backwards compatible. In simpler terms, if you had a node running Ethereum and just left it there, it would support a soft fork. In a hard fork you have to go in and upgrade the node client. When there’s a debate in the community, that’s how miners vote which part of the fork to follow. This time there’s no real debate as this is a big upgrade in the network. Also, Binance says they’ll be no tokens issued.

Oh, well…
