However, during the upgrade there were some problems. Thus, according to CoinDesk, blockchain Ropsten for a while stalled on the block 4,299,999. The cause of the incident is still unknown. Some Ethereum developers have suggested that the reason for this was the problem with the update code, or the reluctance of miners to activate Constantinople.

After some time in testnet up unit with activated Constantinople. However, it turned out that the network has not committed the transaction.

Release Manager Parity Africa Shodan noted that problems due to the fact that many miners have not updated, despite the appeals of the Ethereum developers to maintain network stability Ropsten.

In addition, Sodon stated the problem with the consensus in Ropsten, which resulted in “three-track” hardwork between the Geth, Parity and another Ethereum client.
