Good things take time: After the last Hard Fork date for the Ethereum network, has been postponed at the last Minute, ran the Constantinople-from the Update this time without incident. Not least because the developers refused this Time on the Integration of Ethereum Improvement Proposal EIP 1283. The latter included the potential vulnerability for the Constantinople-cancellation from 15. January was the cause.

in addition to some Updates that are primarily for Ethereum developer-relevant, the biggest improvement in the reduction of the Block Rewards.

Here's the updated Ethereum supply/inflation graph. This assumes:
-EIP-1234 in November via Constantinople hard fork
-Hybrid Casper in 2020 (0.6 ETH/block to PoW miners, 0.22 ETH/block to PoS stakers)
-Full Casper in 2022 (0.22 ETH/block to PoS stakers). pic.twitter.com/qsl3rhY922

Instead of an inflation rate of over seven per cent, to ensure the Thirdening now for a Rate of just over four percent. A Signal for a rate increase, you might say. It would have been safe, would have been the Update to the originally planned date. In the meantime, it can be assumed that the Constantinople of investors has already been priced in mostly – at least the Hard Fork caused so far, for any price rally. With 136,60 US Dollar (editorial deadline) lost the ETH-rate one percentage point compared to the previous day.Read also: Bitcoin-bandits, centralization problems & dubious tax investigation: The situation on Wednesday
