Ethereum World News has proved what many in the crypto world already assumed: Ethereum's Constantinople grade will be delayed until 2019. This comes in the track of a three-way fork occurring on the Ropsten testnet last week when the developers tried to test out the upgrade.
It all began last week when the new Constantinople upgrade was to be flowed out onto to Ropsten testnet. In a nutshell, it didn't go well and made a three-way fork of the network. This proposed developer Afri Schoedon to take to Twitter to state the fact that a delay was likely. Some called the move early. However, at the recent developer meeting, it was acknowledged that delaying Constantinople was the right thing to do.
The team recognized that although the codebase is essentially ready, the fact that the bulk of miners weren't prepared on Ropsten means it is strange a larger rollout would be wise at this time.
Schoedon is quoted in the report:
"I keep seeing the characteristic that we’re attempting to rush this and I would second that we should move and see what happens… I’m not content talking about the hard fork date until we have the tests for Constantinople willing."
The team is still bound to bringing this rise to the Ethereum network. The only problem is when. For now, stick with Chepicap for any updates!
