Hardfork Meta: Petersburg
EIP-1716 is a meta-proposal that outlines the changes included in the Ethereum hardfork called Petersburg. This hardfork removes EIP-1283 from the previous hardfork called Constantinople. The activation block for Petersburg is set at Block >= 7_280_000 on the Ethereum Mainnet. The removed EIP-1283 was related to net gas metering for SSTORE without dirty maps and was removed due to a potential reentrancy attack vector. If Petersburg and Constantinople are applied at the same block, Petersburg takes precedence and EIP-1283 is disabled. The proposal was agreed upon at the All-Core-Devs call #53 in January 2019.
- Codename: Petersburg
- Aliases: St. Petersfork, Peter's Fork, Constantinople Fix
Block >= 7_280_000on the Ethereum Mainnet
Block >= 4_939_394on the Ropsten testnet
Block >= 10_255_201on the Kovan testnet
Block >= 4_321_234on the Rinkeby testnet
Block >= 0on the Görli testnet
- Removed EIPs:
- EIP-1283: Net gas metering for SSTORE without dirty maps
Constantinople are applied at the same block,
Petersburg takes precedence: with the net effect of EIP-1283 being disabled.
Petersburg is defined with an earlier block number than
Constantinople, then there is no immediate effect from the
Petersburg fork. However, when
Constantinople is later activated, EIP-1283 should be disabled.
- The list above includes the EIPs that had to be removed from Constantinople due to a potential reentrancy attack vector. Removing this was agreed upon at the All-Core-Devs call #53 in January 2019.
