A brief outbreak on Tuesday morning at 10:00 am Eastern took down a number of crypto information and trading sites, including Coinbase and CoinMarketCap. The problems got around at. 10:18 and most websites seem to be running again.
Cloudflare, a CDN provider, noticed outbreaks at 1:52 UTC / 9:52 AM East and the affected sites went down shortly afterwards, causing chaos on automatic pricing engines, including CoinDesk. For a moment, CoinDesk's widget showed a price of $ 26 per bitcoin.
Coinbase discovered and implemented a repair after the outbreak.
Poloniex noted the outbreak, but explained that there was no money lost while Itbit reported that the Front-end web server failed because no back-end features were crashed.
