Huobi and OKEx Are Prepared to Support Ethereum's Hard Fork Upgrade | CryptoGlobe
Hong Kong-based digital asset exchange OKEx, and Singapore-headquartered crypto exchange Huobi Global will be supporting the upcoming ethereum (ETH) Constantinople hard fork upgrade. As CryptoGlobe reported in December 2018, Ethereum's development team said that Constantinople would go live between January 14 and 18. Consisting of five different ethereum improvement proposals (EIPs), the Constantinople update will reduce miner rewards from 3 ETH to 2 ETH, and make other fundamental changes to the network's codebase - which are aimed at improving the overall efficiency of the Ethereum blockchain.

Ethereum (ETH) Team Proposes Block Reward Cut after Constantinople Hard Fork - Cryptovest
The Ethereum network is still working out its economics and attempting to optimize mining, but some see the reward reduction as a move to boost ETH prices. The Ethereum (ETH) network is preparing for the Constantinople hard fork, which will come with a reduction in rewards to 2 ETH per block. This was one of the decisions Ethereum developers took in a recent meeting which did not feature founder Vitalik Buterin: https://twitter.com/RichardHeartWin/status/1035545747868012545 The Constantinople hard fork is supposed to be one of the final steps before Ethereum moves into the proof-of-stake stage. However, mining will continue for an indefinite period with a reduced reward. The Byzantium fork from October 2017 lowered the block reward from 5 to 3 ETH.

Ethereum's Constantinople Hard Fork Is Being Delayed Until 2019
Ethereums next hard fork, dubbed Constantinople, will be postponed until early 2019, developers confirmed in a meeting Friday. Initially targeted to activate in November this year, developers opted to postpone the hard fork push after several bugs were found in the code that was released on a test network. Now aiming for sometime in late January or February, developers on the call Friday agreed that moving ahead with the hard fork next month would be unwise. Speaking to this during the live-streamed meeting, developer Afri Schoeden remarked: I keep getting the feeling that we're trying to rush this and I would second that we should breathe and see what happens.

Ethereum's Constantinople Hard Fork Faces Consensus Issue in Testing
Recently tested Ethereum hard fork Constantinople has reportedly caused a consensus issue on a testnet, which will delay its launch. Ethereum's Constantinople hard fork reportedly saw a consensus issue in testing this weekend, devs report launch to be postponed until 2019 An alleged consensus issue in the testing of a planned hard fork of Ethereum, called Constantinople, has caused a testnet to be not usable, according to a tweet from Ethereum blockchain infrastructure firm Infura October 13. Infura's tweet also advises developers to use other testing networks while the Ethereum developer community is investigating the issue.

Ethereum Hard Fork Test Goes Awry, "No Constantinople In 2018" Developer Says - Ethereum World News
On Friday, during the Ethereum Foundation's bi-weekly developer meeting, the attendees of the call revealed that the planned Constantinople hard fork was on track for its November 2018 release. For those who aren't in the loop, Constantinople is one of Ethereums largest upgrades to-date, which will hopefully see the popular blockchain network undergo a variety of changes to better the developer and end-user experience. The most notable of these changes, as covered by Ethereum World News previously, is a block reward deduction from 3 ETH to 2 ETH every 14 seconds. Per data compiled by Ethereum proponent Eric Conner, the 33% reduction of block rewards was drastically improve the Ether inflation rate, which currently sits at 7.4% annually. Eduardo Gomez, a Venezuelan cryptocurrency commentator, likened this move to a Bitcoin block reward halving event, adding that prices will first dump then moon in the months following the event.

Ethereum's Constantinople Hard Fork to Activate on Testnet in October - CoinDesk
Ethereums upcoming hard fork, Constantinople, will activate in a testing environment next month, core developers agreed on Friday. As detailed by CoinDesk, Constantinople features changes designed to increase the platform's efficiency, alter its economic policy and delay the so-called difficulty bomb, a piece of code meant to encourage the network to alter its core consensus algorithm. Speaking in a bi-weekly video call, developers said the upgrade will activate around October 9 on a cross-client testnet, named Ropsten, which mimics the conditions of the ethereum network itself. However, due to the unpredictability of block confirmation times in the testing environment, an exact block number the way most upgrades are timed within the blockchain space for the testnet activation has yet to be finalized.

Ethereum Core Devs Debate Constantinople Hard Fork and Difficulty Bomb During Meeting
Ethereum core devs have discussed the upcoming Constantinople hard fork and the difficulty bomb impact on block rewards at a regular meeting. Ethereum core developers decide to release a hard fork every eight months, as opposed to the proposed six, at a meeting on YouTube Ethereum (ETH) core developers have held their regular meeting on YouTube August 24 on the progress of client implementation and tests of the Ethereum Improvement Proposals (EIP) for the upcoming Constantinople hard fork. The meeting started with a discussion of the latest updates on the processes of no-proof blockchain tests and the progress achieved on major ETH clients, with one of the devs explaining that there is a need to revamp some of the testing to avoid potential consensus issues.
