Cloudflare goes down; crypto websites hit

Cloudlfare, an internet service provider responsible for various functions, went down Sunday morning, taking down many websites, including some crypto sites.

The company confirmed in a tweet it experienced issues around 9:24 am Eastern time caused by a third-party transit provider. Network stability returned around 11 am though Cloudflare said it is still monitoring for other potential problems.

A large majority of the internet uses Cloudflare. News reports noted several popular websites went down following Cloudflare’s network issues, including streaming site Hulu and cooperative gaming services PlayStation Network and Xbox Live.

Crypto websites were not immune. Bitfinex Chief Technology Officer Paolo Ardoino tweeted that the Cloudflare outage caused any connection issues to Bitfinex Sunday morning.
