"We will support the Ethereum Hard Fork (ETH) Constantinople, and we will take a snapshot of our OKEx accounts when the block reaches 70,800,000. This is estimated to take place between January 14 and January 18."
Shortly thereafter, Huobi announced: "Huobi Global will support the hard fork of Ethereum Constantinople.When the start of the upgrade, the flights, if any, will be distributed by Huobi Global after we receive it.We advise our users to deposit ETH in Huobi Global as we will be available to assist our users in case they encounter difficulties.

When the Bitcoin Cash network was updated in November 2018, there was a war between two different development teams. One was the Bitcoin Cash ABC and the other was the Bitcoin Cash SV. This war has had a knock-on effect on the entire cryptocurrency market. The market has yet to recover from this war.
With the updating of Constantinople, the Ethereum community does not have to worry about making special preparations for a new currency or a new blockchain. If users have no interest in joining the fork, they must ensure that they have enough time to pass before making ETH deposits or withdrawals in any exchange. Some exchanges will interrupt deposits and withdrawals before the fork.
