Earlier this week, the Ethereum Foundation announced that the key stakeholders of the community have decided to postpone the Constantinople hard fork because of the discovery of a security attack of the smart contracts after the hard fork. This announcement was made hours before the network upgrade, resulting in the Parity and Geth team releasing an emergency upgrade to avoid revert the upgrade.
The foundation stated that all node operators, miners, and exchanges were required to upgrade to the new version or downgrade to the previous version. This announcement was rather an unexpected one by the community as the Rinkeby Testnet, which took place on January 9, 2019, was stated to be successful, unlike the Ropsten Testnet, which resulted in a three-way fork.
