■ ETH News:
Ethereum’s much anticipated Constantinople hard fork was delayed at the last
minute last week after a security researcher discovered a bug in the software
that could have put the Ethereum blockchain at risk of attacks.
This is not the first time the upgrade has been delayed. It was originally
scheduled to go live in November 2018 but was delayed due to network bugs. A
revised estimate for timing of the fork has not yet been confirmed by the
Ethereum Foundation; however, Ethereum core developers have suggested late
February 2019.
■ Trading History YTD:
After a positive start to the year, ETH has declined over the past two weeks,
both in USD terms as well as in relation to BTC.
■ Current Environment:
ETH underperformed other major cryptocurrencies last week following the
further postponement of its Constantinople fork, announced Tuesday
afternoon.
Volumes increased last week, averaging 22.2 million coins per day.
