Special edition: Year in Ethereum (& update your clients, Constantinople is postponed!)

The Year in Ethereum

Constantinople is suspended

  • Out of an abundance of caution regarding the invariant broken by EIP1283 discovered by ChainSecurity, the Constantinople fork will be postponed

  • As of now, EIP1283 will not be part of Constantinople when it occurs.

  • A new activation date for Constantinople will be chosen on Friday in the all core devs call

  • Update your clients ASAP (you have ~10 hours from when I’m pressing send). Full details and timeline
