With the Istanbul fork scheduled for block 9.069.000 (a little over 5 days from now) being right around the corner, it's important we try to get as many nodes as possible updated.

According to https://ethernodes.org/istanbul, only ~35% of running Ethereum nodes are Istanbul-ready. Although the most important thing is that a majority of the miners have upgraded their nodes, which seems to be the case, we shouldn't forget to remind everyone that runs a node which isn't Istanbul-ready to upgrade their nodes, to make sure no syncing issues will occur.

Here's a list of node versions which are ready for the Istanbul fork:

Harmony/ethereumJ is deprecated and will not support Istanbul.

Please update your nodes folks!
