Ethereum Devs Postpone Constantinople Hard Fork Till Late February

The Ethereum Core developers have proposed the activation of Constantinople at the end of February, a planned system-wide update that was discontinued earlier this week.

Constantinople, also known as Hard-Fork, is expected to be live by the developers between February 26 and February 28, with a block number set at a later date.

The proposal was made on Friday morning during a phone call with key developers. Participants in the call included Ethereum developer Vitalik Buterin and other developers including Hudson Jameson, Lane Rettig, Afri Schoedon, Péter Szilágyi, Martin Holste Swende, Danny Ryan and Alexey Akhunov, among others.

The decision came after Chain Security found on Tuesday’s a vulnerability in one of five Ethereum Improvement Proposals (EIPs) to be filed in Constantinople regarding blockchain storage costs. As a result of the vulnerability, Constantinople is now set  to be activated next month
