Update: The Ethereum wallet downtime has been changed to March 1st, 2am-7am. This is to accommodate a small change in the projected schedule when the upgrade will take place.
An upcoming Ethereum protocol upgrade, referred to as "Constantinople," is expected to take place on the morning of March 1, 2019. Constantinople aims to optimize the Ethereum network in order to lay the groundwork for future developments and has widespread support from the broader Ethereum ecosystem.
This upgrade was originally scheduled to take place in mid-January, but the Ethereum Foundation postponed the upgrade in favor of additional security upgrades.
Though Constantinople is technically a fork, it has strong unified support from the Ethereum community and therefore is not expected to create a new token.
In order to support the upgrade, the Coins team will be halting all ETH wallet activity on March 1st, 1am to 4am Philippine time - including sending, receiving, and converting ETH on Coins.ph, as well as ETH transfers between Coins.ph and Coins Pro accounts. During the downtime, our team will work to take care of the technical requirements and monitor developments so customers do not need to take any specific actions for this upgrade.
Feel free to message us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any other questions. You may also monitor the status of the upgrade at status.coins.ph. Thank you!
