Ethereum Hard Fork?

Postby dra2120 » Mon Jan 07, 2019 9:50 am

I just heard about it, this morning (the 7th). Someone school me on what is going on. From what I could tell this doesn't seem to have the animosity between parties that the BCH/BSV fork did, so hopefully, it won't kill the market again, but I don't know much about it aside from the new chain being called Constantinople.

I've done some more reading, and it seems like it's not a hard fork resulting in different coins, instead, essentially it is so many upgrades, that the blockchain is forking in order to be able to handle the upgrade...and I was all excited for free coins.
