As aforementioned, the testing did not go as per plan, it caused a “consensus issue on ropsten.” Thus instead of a thread of happy tweets the Ethereum developer Afri Schoedon had to post a series of sullen one announcing that there would be“no constantinople in 2018,” adding “we have to investigate.”

Schoedon continued his Twitter update and Tweeted a strong statement, noted Oct. 14, they said that the core developers have made a call and the developers have agreed saying that they will  “not be able to activate Constantinople this year if there are any major issues on Ropsten.”

He furthermore noted that the next scheduled call on the topic would be Friday, Oct. 19, he also asked the community to  “stay tuned” for a clearer better understanding.
