London. 8th January 2019 — CEX.IO will support the Ethereum Constantinople upgrade, which is estimated to happen between 14th and 18th January 2019.
The upgrade – originally planned for November 2018 – has been a part of the Ethereum roadmap for a long time. With Constantinople, network developers are implementing software updates to make the network cheaper and more efficient.
CEX.IO is making all required technical adjustments to enable support for the Constantinople upgrade. Right before the upgrade, it will stop ETH deposits and withdrawals in order to secure users’ funds. After it has been successfully completed, all Ethereum holders will be able to trade their coins on CEX.IO as usual. Additionally, if the chain were to split, all users with ETH on their balances at the time of the fork will receive new coins.
