What is Breaking?

Breaking can signal the interruption of a sequence, rate or continuous state. Applied to the world of cryptocurrency, a discontinuity manifests itself in hard forks of a cryptocurrency when something causes the system to collapse and split into another blockchain - or, in other words, it breaks.
