The Ethereum network will be undergoing a network upgrade of its consensus layer called The Merge.

The Merge is estimated to take place around 15 September 2022 depending on network activity, and you won't be able to send or receive ETH, USDC, UNI, or LINK during this time.

For safety reasons, we will be suspending sends and receives of Ethereum and ERC-20 tokens from 14:00 UTC on 14 September 2022 until a few hours after the Merge is complete.

You don’t need to do anything in preparation, your ETH, USDC, UNI and LINK will be safe during this period.
