Activation of Constantinople in the Ethereum network was postponed to the end of February (updated)

Ethereum developers have proposed to activate hardfork Constantinople in late February. This decision was made during a conference call on the morning of January 18, reports CoinDesk.


Upgrade is scheduled for block # 7 280 000 [27 февраля].

Thus, the Ethereum network should switch to new software in the interval between February 26 and 28, but the block number has not yet been determined.

Note that the developers have excluded the implementation of the problematic EIP-1283 in the upcoming update.

The conference was attended by Vitalik Buterin, Hudson Jameson, Afri Shoedon and other presenters from the Ethereum community.

Recall, the planned upgrade of the Ethereum network called Constantinople was postponed indefinitely after the critical vulnerability discovered by ChainSecurity in one of the improvements.
