The Ethereum Merge started September 6 with the Bellatrix upgrade and should finish by September 20.
Watch this page for updated information about downtime and how this will affect you!
On September 15 at 10:45 (UTC+4), the network began the Paris upgrade and merged with the Beacon Chain, transitioning to a proof-of-stake validation mode. During this phase of the Merge, we suspended ETH and ERC20 withdrawals and deposits. As of 14:00 (UTC+4) everything was back and running smoothly. If you experience any issues, please open a ticket.
Nothing will change with regards to your coin balances.
You do not need to do anything to protect your funds
If you are holding ETH or any other ERC20 digital asset on Cryptal you do not need to do anything with your funds or wallet before The Merge.
According to ethereum.org: "...the entire history of Ethereum since genesis remains intact and unaltered after the transition to proof-of-stake. Any funds held in your wallet before The Merge will still be accessible after The Merge. No action is required to upgrade on your part."
