To prevent loss of funds during the migration, users are not required to transfer their funds to the new smart contract. It is, however, important to note that, during the contract migration, all pre-existing contract addresses will be locked.
User’s ShareToken (SHR) can be found in Etherscan after their first transfer. Users can also transfer tokens to any ERC-20 address. It is important to note that no transfer should be made to the recently updated smart contract.
