Coinbase Was Unavailable For 54 Minutes Like During The Bitcoin Rally
The largest cryptocurrency exchange in the USA Coinbase once again was unavailable during increased market volatility.
Almost an hour offline
The most relevant crypto news says, yesterday, just when the market started moving upward, the Coinbase became almost unavailable for almost an hour.
Recall yesterday at 23:00 UTC the BTC rate rose sharply to $10,400 and almost reached its annual maximum. At that time, Coinbase traders could not do any trading operations on the exchange.
Coinbase's official answer
Crypto-platform experts recognized the problem on the official website of the exchange in the section for resolving technical failures. They said that the bug was caused by the increased delay during data transfer. They spent 54 minutes to solve the trouble in the equipment, which was fairly quick, still, in such moments every second counts. So users consider this behavior of the site unacceptable.
Similar precedents have already happened
Users of the crypto platform reproached Coinbase for the fact it was not the first time that it worked incorrectly during sudden movements in the market.
For example, in May of this year, when BTC fell sharply below $8,000 in a short period of time, Coinbase was also offline. A similar situation was in 2019 when bitcoin lost 15% of its value in 24 hours.
