Major cryptocurrency exchanges are working irregularly after bitcoin’s correction caused by the cryptocurrency’s historical price leap to 11,000 USD. Some trading platforms and exchanges went offline.
For example, activation problems on API platforms were reported by Coinbase / GDAX. Such leading exchanges as Bitfinex and Bitstamp also became unavailable.
In its turn, Coinbase registered record traffic too, which is 8 times higher than the latest traffic boom. This resulted in failures.
Having broken out a record high of 11,000 usd on Wednesday evening, bitcoin price underwent correction and dropped to 9,000 usd at some exchanges on Thursday.
According to Coinmarketcap, the bitcoin weight average rate is slightly less than 10,000 usd on Thursday.
