This has caused many exchanges to disable the withdrawals of Ethereum and ERC-20 tokens. noted:

“It seems exchanges using Infura suspend withdrawing ETH and ERC20 tokens. For example, the largest exchange Upbit was not hacked. Their outflow looks normal.

When Upbit was hacked in Nov 2019, the outflow skyrocketed before the withdrawal limits.”

Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao said the exchange is investigating a possible Ethereum chain split at block 11234873. “Etherscan and Blockchair are showing two different chains and data after this block. We’re resolving now but have temporarily closed withdrawals,” said CZ.

“ERC20 tokens deposit and withdrawals resumed,” CZ added.

Infura said it has brought additional capacity online for the affected components and is continuing to assess the root cause of the outage.

The affected components include Ethereum mainnet archive data, mainnet filters, mainnet logs, mainnet WebSocket JSON-RPC API, and mainnet HTTPS JSON-RPC API. All these segments are experiencing “major” outages.
