OKEx has recently made it known that it will be supporting the upcoming Ethereum Constantinople Hard Fork which is planned to occur at a block height of 7,080,000. Although a specific date has not been set for the event to take place, the event is estimated to occur between January 14-18th, 2018. OKEx’s announcement comes just a day after Binance released a publication stating that it will also be supportive of the Constantinople Hard Fork.
OKEx to Support Ethereum and Its Airdrops
The platform has given its users the assurance that it will take full responsibility for all technical requirements during the course of the event. The exchange has also made it known to the crypto community that supposing there are airdrops available during the event, such airdrops will be distributed to their clients.
The OKEx made this announcement through a statement which reads:
“To secure your asset, we recommend you to deposit you Ethereum tokens into OKEx. And we will handle all the technical requirements for the hard fork. If there are any airdrops during the hard fork time, project teams are welcome to contact us at [email protected] will do the distribution to our users after receiving the tokens.”
Ethereum Classic Vision and Nowa Hardforks
Ethereum Classic Vision is a hard fork of Ethereum which is to occur on the 11th of January before Constantinople and all holders of Ethereum are to receive 3 ETCV for every ETH in their wallets. It takes advantage of both Ethereum and Ethereum Classic and it vows to introduce sharding, POS mining, and find solutions to the present difficulties in the market. But for Ethereum Nowa’s hard fork which is to take place on the 12th of January, each holder of ETH is to receive 1 ETN. However, warnings were issued by the Bitcoin Talk Forum stating that this fork might be a scam, therefore, advising clients about going ahead with the ETN hard fork.
