Maintenance Reminder

As we prepare for the deployment of the V2 smart contract upgrades on Monday, January 29, from 2:30 pm to 6:30 pm UTC, please note that the system will be temporarily suspended during this period. The timeframe given is an estimate, but we strive to minimize any impact on our community. Users are encouraged to claim, mint, or burn before the scheduled downtime, as the transfer of all HZN will be temporarily disabled.
