Developers are eyeing January 16th as the date on which Constantinople, ethereum’s upcoming network hard fork, could launch.
The upgrade for the world’s second-largest blockchain was originally targeted for November, bringing with it a host of design changes aimed at streamlining the platform’s code in a bid to boost performance. Yet the November launch window was ultimately due to unanticipated problems with the test release, necessitating a longer development period.
While the Jan. 16 date was reached by way of a non-binding verbal agreement, it’s not fixed or final. Indeed, developers on Friday’s bi-weekly call said that Constantinople could be postponed further should additional problems arise.
