Ethereum Constantinople Delayed Until February 27th (Last Date of VanEck Bitcoin ETF Verdict)

Earlier this week, Ethereum World News reported that Ethereum’s long-planned Constantinople blockchain upgrade fell upon hard times, with developers drawing attention to an error in the protocol’s code, which would purportedly allow malicious attackers to drain ETH from smart contracts. As this news propagated, the market fell, with Ether falling by upwards of 5% in a few hours’ time.

Vitalik Buterin, Hudson Jameson, Afri Schoedon, among a handful of other notable, pertinent Ethereum core developers convened in an emergency developer call, doing their utmost to determine the proper course of action. The developers agreed that a delay was mandated, as if the bugged version of Constantinople went live, the Ethereum ecosystem would have been decimated.
