So, why the two “fork” after “bitcoin will appear with luxuriant foliage” value fell sharply?

If you take a tree as a metaphor, the bifurcation occurs after the new leaves, will compete for the limited nutrient and the original trunk. For the bitcoin community, computing power and user is equivalent to “nutrient”: a part of the original mill were attracted to the new currency to dig the bifurcation, which is to dig bitcoin reduction.
