Following the upgrade, the PlatON Cross-Chain Bridge will support cross-chain deposit and withdrawal functionalities for USDT and USDC contracts that conform to the PRC-12 standard. Deposits to the pre-upgrade USDT and USDC contracts will be discontinued, while withdrawal functionalities will be retained.
Update Time: 6:00–10:00 on June 5, 2023 (UTC)

Features of the Upgraded Contract:

The PRC-12 standard stablecoin contract will be upgraded on the PlatON network

  • Gasless payments and authorization
  • One-click payment
  • Account abstraction contract wallets can sign and call new stablecoin contracts, such as Argent, Safe, and Unipass.

Users who held USDT and USDC before the upgrade can exchange the cryptos through the following two ways:
1) The Withdraw fee for the original USDT and USDC will be reduced, and users can withdraw them to the native network through the Withdraw function.
2) PlatON Cross-chain Bridge will launch an exchange channel recently. Then users who held USDT and USDC before the upgrade can exchange them at a 1:1 ratio for the upgraded USDT and USDC through the exchange function.
We apologize for any inconvenience caused by this update and appreciate your understanding and support.
