 September 14, 2022 - MoonPay

  • MoonPay will continue operating during the Merge:

    Yes. The ability to buy ETH and ERC20 assets will not be affected by the Merge, although we do expect there to be some minor delays in delivering these assets to customers.
  • Can users sell ETH and ERC20 assets on MoonPay during the Merge?
    Yes. The ability to sell will be unaffected, but customers should still expect delays when selling crypto via MoonPay due to delays on the blockchain itself.

    Along with ETH and ERC20 assets, expect delayed withdrawals for supported assets on Sorare (ETH), Immutable (USDC, IMX, GODS, ETH), Polygon (SAND, USDC, ETH), and zkSync (USDT, ETH, DAI, USDC).
