Popular cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase is having a rough Thursday morning amid bitcoin's huge gain in price.
The company said via Twitter that its service is "currently experiencing record high traffic" that is "resulting in some customers having slow performance or issues logging into their Coinbase.com accounts.”
Although Coinbase didn't say why it's experiencing so much traffic, it's pretty clear it has something to do with bitcoin's skyrocketing prices over the past few days. The cryptocurrency’s value went past $19,000 on Thursday morning, just hours after it topped $15,000.
We are currently experiencing record high traffic. This is resulting in some customers having slow performance or issues logging into their https://t.co/bCG11KveHS accounts. We are actively working to resolve this as quickly as possible.
