London, England, January 8, 2019 — CEX.IO will support the Ethereum Constantinople upgrade, which is estimated to happen between 14 and 18 January 2019.
The Ethereum Constantinople upgrade – originally planned for November 2018 but actually taking place in January 2019 – has been a part of the Ethereum roadmap for a long time. With Constantinople, network developers are implementing software updates to make the Ethereum network cheaper and more efficient.
CEX.IO is making all required technical adjustments to enable support for the Constantinople upgrade. Right before the upgrade, we will stop ETH deposits and withdrawals in order to secure users’ funds, as that is our main priority. After the Constantinople upgrade 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.
“With more than 2.7 million users, CEX.IO is working on the reliable products and services to maintain the trust of millions of our clients across the globe. Each and every product should bring the highest value to the users by providing simple and effective solutions for their financial needs.” — Elaine Neal, CEX.IO Chief Product Officer.
