The US crypto exchange Coinbase is down. The exchange is down because of the server provider Cloudfare the company utilizes, reported Metro. Cloudflare gives server assistance to more than twelve million websites.
Last week, Coinbase had some difficulties too. The exchange’s website was down for more than one hour and at that time the Bitcoin price was declined by more than $2,000.
Matthew Prince, Cloudflare CEO, tweeted:
The blackout created problems for many cryptocurrency websites. The cryptocurrency website Coindesk tweeted: ‘ Due to a Cloudflare outage, we’re getting bad data from our providers, which is showing incorrect crypto prices.
According to coinmarketcap, the current Bitcoin price is $10,494.32. The cryptocurrency exchange Poloniex also faced the outage but clarified that no funds were lost. The Poloniex tweeted:
