Abstract
This article examines the impact of technological changes—referred to as “forking,” which triggers
blockchain splits—to cryptocurrency given its market conditions. Despite the explicit distinction in the
log return distributions between two splitting blockchains, adopting new technology does not lead to a
disparity in market conditions: no significant difference exists in market efficiency and long-term
market equilibrium between the two splitting blockchains. Technological change accompanying the
market separation does not impede the underlying uniformity in market conditions. The findings suggest
that mutual information flows, linked to market liquidity, explain the results between the new and old
forks


Keywords: Hard fork; Efficient market hypothesis; Market equilibrium; Information flow JEL Classification: 90.01 Social phenomena
