At the last videoconference, the developers of the Ethereum blockchain have set a new date for the hard-core Constantinople in the main network – January 16, 2019.

At the same time, the block on which its activation will occur has not been finally selected yet. It is assumed that the developers will again discuss this issue in two weeks on “Black Friday”, on November 23.

Initially, the protocol update was scheduled for November, but after finding several bugs as part of testing on the Ropsten network, the developers decided to postpone it.

The code for updating Constantinople will be presented before the end of the current year.

Recall the other day the developers of Ethereum published a draft technical document for the Casper solution.
