Two days ago, brand new code was released on GitHub that had a Constantinople activation time within it. The post reads that Geth, or ‘Go Ethereum,’ is a special release and a hard fork will take place on the Ethereum (ETH) mainnet at block 7,080,000. This new hard fork is expected to take place around January 16th, 2019.
