Members of ethereum’s open-source development team have reached agreement on an activation time for Constantinople, a proposed code change designed to give users the option to update the blockchain with additional features.
Speaking at a bi-weekly core developer meeting Friday, the developers assembled agreed on block 7,080,000 on the ethereum blockchain as an activation point at which users would be able to elect to upgrade to the new code. Put simply, should users choose to accept the change by upgrading their software, the update would go live when the block is mined.
According to estimates by release manager for the Parity client, Afri Schoedon, this means Constantinople is expected to go live between January 14 and 18. The block number is expected to be introduced onto the platform in the next batch of software updates.
