Ethereum (ETH) Constantinople Hard Fork
#11
We will have to wait until the fork is done. As long as you have the private key you should be safe.

If you have ETH on exchanges then make sure your exchange is supporting the fork. The major ones does.

From Cex.io:

"Additionally, if the chain splits and a new coin emerges, all users having ETH on their balances at the time of the fork will receive a new coin."

Ethereum Constantinople Hard Fork will take place in about 6 hours from the time of writing.
About 09 PM CET.

I am not sure I understand why and what is going on here. But it sounds like the sort of thing to put off ordinary people! I assume that ETH will be faster, more scalable etc but asking people to make sure their exchange supports...private key.... sounds scary!

People who just own ETH don't have to be worried.
Only miners and contract holders should do some adaptation.

BTW 2 hardforks are expected today.
St. Petersburg upgrade will disable one part of Constantinople code which was recently discovered to hold a smart contract security flaw. However, the changes introduced by St. Petersburg will likely not be noticeable to the average users.

Constantinople upgrade is to serve as a ‘maintenance and optimization update,’ and the changes it will bring upon activation will mostly affect Ethereum miners. This particular change includes the reduction of Ethereum block rewards from three ETH coins per block to only two. Ethereum’s previous hard fork, Byzantium, introduced a similar change which reduced the block rewards from 5 ETH to 3 ETH.

The two upgrades are expected to introduce several other new changes to the Ethereum blockchain, with the most impactful one being the Ethereum blockchain’s scalability improvement.

Other changes will include the improvements in the blockchain’s speed and efficiency, improvements regarding energy consumption, and of gas cost reduction.

Interested in watching the forks live? You can use the Fork Monitor tool to do so. Take note that the speed of block mining can vary and that the hard forks are not scheduled to occur at a specific time. Instead, they are tied to Ethereum’s 7,280,000th block.
