What do we expect to happen after the forking? Do we need to do something before and after the fork?

Just update wallet binaries once it is released. If you are mining update your software previous fork, to support changes on POW.

For April fork, POW will be tweaked as It was on April and August last year. https://www.reddit.com/r/Monero/comments/an4v6f/the_next_pow_algorithm_has_been_proposed/

And probably the big change will come If RandomX get approved and implemented for the next fork.

Edit: After the fork, monero's network hashrate should decrease.

Yeah this will be third XMR fork as a miner to kick out the undesirables. I'm doing exactly what I have done in the past. A month or two prior to the scheduled fork, when the network difficulty goes sky high, I switch my Vega rig to something else. And then I hop right back on post fork.

Ok, I want you to walk back in there and very calmly, very politely tell the risk assessors to fuck off! -Mark Baum

Interesting that previous forks have seen the difficulty rise gradually before the fork, making Vegas gradually less usable, but this time it has rocketed out of control.

I wonder if the 'boom and bust' cycle of XMR's forking schedule has encouraged asic devs to speed up their process, so they go full out immediately rather than ramp up secretly.

I think its FPGAs this time, and a lot of them. I wouldn't be surprised if this round they simple update their bitstreams and hash rate goes back to where it was.

I was told it's ASICs. And stone-age, 65nm ones at that, that were apparently re-purposed.
We'll know in a couple of weeks I guess.
