All aboard for the Shapella upgrade - it's shipping in April! The zkEVM space had its own fair share of shipping over the last month (cue a zero-knowledge meme). Out in the real world, we had banks suffering runs causing a huge depeg of major stablecoins.

At Etherscan we pushed various changes including an integration with Unstoppable Domains and a feature to display local time zones across the site.

In this issue, we look at the complex on-chain dynamics of USDC's recent depegging. We also have a flash loan quiz for you to answer for a chance to win $10 in ETH.

Why didn't I receive the Arbitrum token airdrop?
Etherscan and Arbiscan are block explorers that allow users to view transactions on Ethereum and Arbitrum. Our team does not have control over any token. Reach out to the Arbitrum Foundation for airdrop info.

Can I access an address page using domain names?
Yes. Enter an ENS or Unstoppable Domain name directly in the URL to access an address page. For example, type instead of the address hash in your browser. But beware of typos!
