Scheduled Maintenance in Progress

Scheduled maintenance is currently in progress. As scheduled, trading has been temporarily halted at 01:00 UTC for a minor upgrade. The system will be in cancel-only mode until 01:05 UTC. We plan to bring the system back up at approximately 01:30 UTC in cancel-only mode for five minutes. Trading will resume at approximately 01:35 UTC. From the halt of trading until continuous trading resumes, there will be no Mark Price updates and hence no liquidations. While this is a minor update, the process may take longer depending on a number of factors. During the upgrade, relevant updates will be shared here.
