Ethereum [ETH], the third largest cryptocurrency and the leading smart contract, is back in the news, yet again, because of the Constantinople hard fork. This time the team has decided to postpone the hard fork as issues related to the hard fork have been brought to light by ChainSecurity, an audit platform for smart contracts, and the team is currently looking into the potential of the vulnerability of these issues.
The decision to push the hard fork forward was jointly taken by Ethereum stakeholders, security researchers, Ethereum client developer, smart contract owners and developers, wallet providers, dApp developers, Node operators and other key members of the community. The Foundation has also asked miners, exchanges and node operators to update to the new version of Parity and Geth.
