Just a reminder brought to you by your friends at newsBTC. If you’re having trouble getting access to Bitstamp today, you’re not the only one. The exchange’s website has been up and down this afternoon due to unknown reasons.
It’s very much the center of much paranoia, with some even speculating they’ve been forced to shut down by a government entity. Of course, that doesn’t seem to be the case. As of this writing, the website appears to be up, but with flaky performance.
Bitstamp did not immediately respond to an inquiry regarding the downtime from newsBTC. If we receive a statement, we’ll be sure to update this post with that information.
