Cloudflare’s global failure hit bitcoin turbines
On June 21, the Cloudflare network service provider warned of a global failure of his services. Cryptocurrency exchanges have experienced technical problems.
The American company provides CDN services, DDOS attacks, safe access to resources and DNS servers.
Against the background of a failure at Cloudflare, the FTX exchange warned about the difficulty access of most users to her site. The platform switched the markets to post-up positions.
Bitfinex technical Director Paolo Ardoino also confirmed that problems with Internet services touched the site, like many other online platforms.
Coinbase reported difficulties with connecting to the retail and institutional trading platforms.
“This can lead to unsuccessful transactions, delaying transactions and unforeseen scenarios on a web page and in mobile applications,” the traders exchange warned.
The head of OKX Jay Hao wrote to users that the inability to visit the exchange website is probably related to Cloudflare.
“It looks like a global shutdown of the Internet, soon everything will return to its circles. Any Web3 alternative in the future?”, – he added.
One of the users said that the failure touched the European Bitcoin-Biru Whitebit and the Pancakeswap Defi Protocol, as well as the Discord platform popular in the crypto community.
Recall that in October 2021 there was a failure with DNS-records due to which Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram, Twitter, Amazon Web Services and many others were injured.
