Identified
Due to a potential 51% attack on the Ethereum Classic network, we have temporarily increased the number of confirmations required for ETC deposits to 500 (roughly 1 hour and 56 minutes). We will continue to monitor the situation and lower it back to 120 confirmations once our developers believe it is safe to do so.
