Some wallets support multiple cryptocurrencies. As long as the wallet provider updates its software to accommodate changes from a hard fork, users may continue to access their funds without issues.

SPV wallets, like some mobile wallets, rely on simplified verification methods to confirm transactions without downloading the entire blockchain. They can adapt to hard forks more easily, as long as the underlying protocol changes are considered in wallet updates.

The term "underlying protocol" typically refers to the foundational communication protocol used in a network or system. For example, the Internet's underlying protocol is the Internet Protocol (IP), which enables data to be transmitted between devices.

While SPV wallets don't download the entire blockchain, they still offer a good level of security by verifying transactions using only the block headers and connecting to full nodes for confirmation, ensuring that transactions are valid.
