Rather than reinvent the wheel, I’ll point you to Vanguard’s very good explanation of the changes to the money market accounts.  https://investor.vanguard.com/mutual-funds/money-market-reform/

If you are an individual investor, the changes should be very minor. Retail money market funds will still have stable $1 net asset values like you are accustomed to. Institutional funds (for corporations and foundations) will have floating net asset values that will fluctuate based on market conditions.
