Constantinople hardfork faces an issue, delayed

Recommended Posts

According to a tweet from Infura (Ethereum blockchain infrastructure firm), developers were testing Constantinople (the planned hard fork of Ethereum) and were faced an alleged "consensus issue."

As Ethereum developers investigate the problem, Infura has advised that developers utilize other testing networks. The multiple Ethereum developers reported that the hard fork became active on the Ropsten testnet on 13th October at block 4,230,000.

However, a consensus issue happened on Ropsten while the testing was going on, which caused Afri Schoedon (Ethereum developer) to state in a tweet that there would be "no Constantinople in 2018."

Schoedon, clarifying the statement noted 14th  October that developers had agreed they would "not be able to activate Constantinople this year if there are any major issues on Ropsten." He then told the community to wait till same Friday to get updated.


The Constantinople hard fork was created to improve on the efficiency of the network. In the early part of this year, an Ethereum Improvement Proposal was opened by Piper Merriam (an Ethereum developer) which indicates a possible Ethereum hard fork to invalidate ASIC miners, which are referred to as greatly centralizing.
