Despite the fact that the activation of hard forks Constantinople in Ethereum was cancelled by the developers a few hours before the appointed date, the division of the blockchain, still held. As explained by Michael Hahn (Michael Hahn) from MyCrypto project, on the transfer of the update was to inform you not all the miners – and about 10% of them moved to the new network. The amount of computing power today is two times higher than Ethereum Classic, with a backlog from the main network per thousand blocks.
In addition, problems found, and those who just carried out the upgrade nodes. For example, the developer of the Protocol Parity of Sedan Afri (Afri Schoedon) “warned the world about the need to update (the client), and its own node stuck in wrong fork”.
After telling the entire world to upgrade, of course my very own node gets stuck on the wrong fork lol

Recall that hardwork Constantinople was the last time officially postponed indefinitely due to a detected vulnerability in the improvement of the EIP-1283. However, as stated by the consultant in the field of cryptobatrachus Sergio Demian Lerner (Sergio Demian Lerner), it really has been known for a few months, so he and his team had not occurred, that the Ethereum developers don’t know about the problem.
Activation of the second part of hard forks Metropolis was scheduled for October at the block # 4230000, but the miners sabotaged the activation Constantinople in the test network Ropsten – and it pushed first for a few days, then November and finally decided to move to the middle of January.
