Through a recent bi-weekly call of the core developers of Ethereum, it was confirmed that Constantinople, the next relevant protocol of the project, will be activated on the processing of the 7.080.000 block, which is expected to arrive around January 14, for CoinTelegraph and the Etherscan statistics.
