Two leading crypto exchanges will support the upcoming Ethereum Hard Fork – Constantinople.
Binance made the announcement on its website on January 3, which officially confirmed their intentions to support the hard fork. Moreover, the company informed its users regarding timely deposits in terms of the time required for the processing.
"We will handle all technical requirements involved for all users holding Ether in their Binance accounts," annoucement reads.
The Constantinople is unlikely to entail new chains, though airdrops and new projects are possible. Thus, the company calls the project teams for cooperation.
Another big fish in the crypto market that may support the hard fork is OKEx.
"We will support the upcoming Ethereum Constantinople Hard Fork and will handle all the technical requirements involved," wrote the company in its post.
The Ethereum hard fork is expected to happen on the block 7,080,000 on January 14-18. However, this will actually be just a network upgrade that will bring some code optimization for the transition to Proof-of-Stake.
"The Hard Fork will result in a new blockchain which contains all five upgrades, also known as the EIP’s, the abbreviation of Ethereum Improvement Proposals," OKEx added in the press release.
