Can we please organize all the information about what is going on right now in this thread? Coinbase, Kraken, GDAX, and so on? There’s no real information here in the sub anymore? Just memes?

Guys, we should make a list of everything that is wrong right now. How is Coinbase doing? Gdax? Kraken?

Below I would like to add the status of other Bitcoin services as you guys keep commenting your experiences. The objective would be for us to have a good overview of whats going on right now.

Mods, please let this post live. We need information during times where everyone is "What the hell is going on".

Please upvote this thread and the good comments and I'll keep editing throughout the day.


  • Bitfinex is doing fine (unless you margin traded yesterday during the flash crash), I didn't try to withdraw though so I don't know if that's working right now.

  • Cryptopia (New Zealand exchange) is doing fine, no downtimes, possible to withdraw and everything seems ok besides everything melting down.

  • GDAX is currently stable.

  • Kraken is having troubles for a long time now. Orders don't go through, 404 errors and duplicated orders, you name it. Basically,yesterday was like any other day for them. (please check Kraken staff comment below).

  • Coinbase FINALLY allowed me to buy bitcoin after several attempts and error messages. (this is not consensus, many people still unable to buy / sell through Coinbase). Coinbase say they are under maintenance.

  • Bitstamp is currently stable and able to make trades.

  • Gemini has been working fine for me. Threw up a couple limit orders as the price was dropping, they went in and ended up being filled successfully.

  • Quadriga (one of the prominent Canadian exchanges) is business as usual.

  • Bittrex is being reported by multiple users, transactions delay, transactions cancelled, support is non existance, etc, be careful.

Kraken replied to the thread with the following comment: "Hi OP, just as a general update, which has been also mentioned by one of the commenters here, /u/bhishmapitamah/ — we do have update(s) coming at Kraken, to the trade engine as well, and they are coming soon (anticipated deployment between 1st and 2nd week(s) of December 2017, although we don't have an exact date). Please see here for further details."

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

I miss the days Bitcoin was more about fighing against the criminal banking/governments, we don’t talk much about it anymore.

Those kind of things got me attracted to Bitcoin, Bitcoin that was made as a protest to these criminal bankers, not wether btc should be 1mb, 2mb or 8mb. Seems people forgot about it. I miss those days man and got tired of these scaling topics. Lets focus more on why Bitcoin was made in the first place.
