During the height of Bitcoin’s volatility, Coinbase, the largest cryptocurrency exchange in the US, suffered a system-wide outage that impacted users. Users of the Coinbase mobile app and website were forced to deal with the “503 Service Temporarily Unavailable” error message due to the disruption.

CryptoCaster Quick Check:

Coinbase disruption

The timing of Coinbase’s outage could not have been worse. Users were concerned about Coinbase’s capacity to manage spikes in user activity effectively because it happened at the same time as the bitcoin price fluctuated.

Following a four-hour outage, Coinbase was back online and announced the good news that user funds were secure. However, the outage has highlighted recurring issues with the platform’s stability during peak trading hours.

This issue is not specific to Coinbase; the exchange has encountered similar technical challenges in the past during periods of high trading volume.

Regulatory Examination of Coinbase

The company faces additional challenges, such as the legal scrutiny from oversight organizations like the Securities and Exchange Commission of the United States (SEC).

A U.S. District Court judge determined that there is sufficient justification for the SEC’s lawsuit against Coinbase to move forward in the most recent case. According to the lawsuit, Coinbase operates as a broker, clearing agency, and illegal, unregistered securities exchange. Another facet of the exchange and its users are left in limbo by this legal dispute.CRYPTOCASTER® - DECENTRALIZED FREEDOM!

We hope you appreciated this article. Before you move on, I was hoping you would consider taking the step of supporting CryptoCaster’s journalism. 

From  Elon Musk, Larry Fink(BlackRock) to Jamie Dimon(JP Morgan Chase) a number of billionaire owners have a powerful hold on so much of the hidden agendas’ which eludes the public concerning the paradigm shift juxtaposed by cryptocurrency and web3 emerging technologies. CryptoCaster is different. We have no billionaire owner or shareholders to consider. Our journalistic efforts are produced to serve the public interest in crypto development and institutional disruptions – not profit motives.

And we avoid the trap that befalls much U.S. and global media – the tendency, born of a desire to please all sides, to engage in false equivalence in the name of neutrality and retail consumer protection. While fairness and transparency dictates everything we do, we know there is a right and a wrong position in the fight against fiat global banking interest and monetary reconstruction precipitated by the emerging crypto ecology.

When we report on issues like the FTX, Binance and Ripple crisis, we’re not afraid to name who or what is uncovered. And as a crypto sentinel, we’re able to provide a fresh, outsider perspective on the global monetary disruption – one so often missing from the insular American and European media bubble. 

Around the world, readers can access the CryptoCaster’s paywall-free journalism because of our unique reader-supported model. That’s because of people like you. Our readers keep us independent, beholden to no outside influence and accessible to everyone – whether they can afford to pay for news and information, or not.
