Hardfork Constantinople in the Ethereum network may take place in November



In the course of the traditional videoconference of Ethereum developers on Friday, October 12, it was announced that the planned hardfork Constantinople will take place, most likely, in November. This writes CoinDesk .

To date, the update has already been made to the code bases of all the most popular clients of the network, including the Ethereum Foundation and Parity, but the date of the hard forks and, accordingly, the block number on which the activation should take place, is still not defined.

The update, however, depends on how smooth the hard forks go through the Ropsten test network, the activation of which was postponed due to a bug found in one of the five upgrades and should take place on Sunday, October 14th.

However, at today's meeting, several client developers confirmed that they were generally ready to launch on the test network.

“The developers are looking forward to the upcoming release of Constantinople on the test network. We are on the right track and hope that the release of Constantinople in the core network will take place less than a month after Devcon, ”said Hudson Jameson, head of communications at the Ethereum Foundation, after the conference.

Earlier it was expected that the activation of Constantinople in the main Ethereum network will take place before the Devcon4 conference, which will be held from October 30 to November 2 in Prague. In September, the Ethereum developers, however, stated that the planned hard forks, most likely, will take place in December.
