RT @ClassicIsComing: ETC is set to also implement Constantinople on the 3 node clients; Geth, IOHK’s Mantis, & Parity-Ethereum
Here’s an insightful look at what’s actually happening “under the hood” by @MyCrypto
After this is complete $ETC should begin to deviate techwise
I think reading about Constantinople fork is the best thing you can do in order to understand how Eth works. Then you will probably have a better success rate while guessing Eth's price in MPCX' s tournament..
So i have a couple questions.... I have a couple of Ethereum on Coinbase. Will I receive a couple of coins on Constantinople when it forks? Will Coinbase give me these coins like they did with Bitcoin Cash? If not, is there a way to receive these coins without using coinbase?
From what I understand the issuance of separate coins (especially within contentious forks) is purely down to the discretion of the exchange your keeping your coins with. Since this hard fork is a planned upgrade and it’s not expected for the old chain to be used - it’s unlikely you’ll receive additional coins from an exchange.
In the event that the old chain does get used (for whatever reason) it’s always best to have actual ownership of your ETH private keys on your own wallet as opposed to them credited with an exchange account.
[Coinbase FAQ](https://support.coinbase.com/customer/portal/articles/2888986-eth-byzantium-fork-faq) from the last hard fork. Expect something similar this time around.
Almost definitely coinbase will automatically give you equivalent eth on constantinople, you will no longer have coins on the old fork, which for all intents and purposes will no longer exist, and you likely will not even notice.
I sent an email to Coinbase support, however they said they had not yet taken a public decision. Thought it was kinda weird, would mean I have to move to Binance for example.
So also curious if anyone can tell?
