When’s the most inconvenient time for a top bitcoin exchange to go down? Why, in the middle of the trading day, of course! This seems to be the case at the moment, as users are unable to reach Bitstamp’s homepage. The API, on the other hand remains functional.
newsBTC’s attempt to access the site produced a 404 Page not found error, with the bold text “and it’s gone” — which is there in jest, but we can see how someone might be shocked to see that.
At any rate, the website is likely experience technical issues and should be back to normal soon (we’re hoping). In the meantime, relax and take a deep breath!
Update: Some users are reporting you can go direct to the login screen.
Update II: All seems back to normal at this point.
