Coinbase faces widespread outage, assures users’ funds are safe

In this post:

  • Coinbase has been experiencing a global outage.
  • The outage has caused the interruption of trading activities on both the Coinbase website and mobile app.
  • The situation is under investigation.

Coinbase, the biggest cryptocurrency exchange in the USA, has been experiencing a global outage. Coinbase Support initially recognized the problem on the X social media platform in the early hours of Tuesday. Through the blog, the crypto exchange told the users that it was looking into the issue and trying to solve it. Coinbase also informed the users that their funds were safe while the personnel were working on the problem.

Coinbase experiences disruption

The outage has caused the interruption of trading activities on both the Coinbase website and mobile app. The efforts to get into the crypto exchange’s website have failed and caused a 503 error message, which means the problem was still there at the time of this publication.

During the outage, many Coinbase users have turned to social media platforms to show their disappointment regarding the situation. Some users have sent screenshots of the messages they got while they were trying to access the Coinbase app that said, “Planned maintenance in progress.”

While the first message from Coinbase Support was that they will investigate the matter, the crypto exchange has not given a concrete reason for the outage at the time of writing. The company still upholds its original position that it is looking into the case.

Ensuring transparency and trust

This is not the first case of Coinbase having a system breakdown. At the end of March, this year, the crypto exchange met the same situation. Nevertheless, the company later linked the March incident as the heavy trading activities that were observed on the platform.

The crypto industry has been criticized lately, because of the questions related to security, regulation, and the volatility of the market. The incidents like this outage prove that the construction of a reliable infrastructure and the planning of contingency plans for digital asset exchanges is very important.

Coinbase’s quick reaction to the issue and its transparent explanation to its users will be a test of the exchange’s strong resilience and its dedication to customer satisfaction.
