Centrifuge’s migration to parachain started 2022-04-05 08:00 UTC and will take ~24-36 hours. This means that all transactions on the standalone chain are disabled in that period while all data are being transferred from the standalone chain to the parachain.
The last step of the migration is to remove the sudo key which will enable transfers on the parachain, including claiming of CFG rewards from the crowdloan (which is scheduled for the week of 11th April if everything goes smoothly). You can read more about the launch process and stay updated with the progress here.
After the migration, you just have to make two very small changes to see your CFG balance, transfer tokens, participate in governance etc.
When you wanted to make transactions on the standalone chain in the Polkadot portal, you would go to LIVE NETWORKS → CENTRIFUGE.
After the migration you will use POLKADOT & PARACHAINS → CENTRIFUGE. To make sure your balance is shown in the portal and you have access to all the functionality, you also have to remember to change the chain of your account in your Polkadot.js browser extension. See the screenshots below to see what you are going to do differently.
SELECTING NETWORK IN THE PORTAL:
SELECTING CHAIN IN THE EXTENSION:
I DON’T SEE MY TOKENS
If you don’t see your tokens in the portal, or you don’t see “Centrifuge” in the extension (but only “Centrifuge Chain”), it is most likely because you have to update metadata first.
Then follow the steps above again.

If you want to see your transactions on the new parachain, you have to use the new version of Subscan. If you want to see your transactions on the old standalone chain, you have to use the old version of Subscan.
New version of Subscan: https://centrifuge.subscan.io/
Old version of Subscan: https://centrifuge-standalone-history.subscan.io/
If you follow the steps above, you should be able to see your balance in the portal and once the migration is fully done, this is where all the transactions will take place.
