Crypto exchanges suffer Cloudflare web outage

An issue with Cloudflare has brought several crypto exchanges to a halt.

Cloudflare provides key infrastructure for the Internet.

The content delivery network or CDN, confirmed via an update posted early on June 21 that it is experiencing “widespread issues” with its services and network.

A number of crypto exchanges relying on Cloudflare for distributed denial of service (DDOS) protection have been hit by the outage.

FTX said in a tweet that its exchange and other sites “are going to be hard to access for many users.”

FTX added that FTX markets are currently in “post-only” mode.

Bitfinex and OKX also tweeted about the issue.

At approximately 3 a.m. ET, Cloudfare said in its post that the issue “has been identified and a fix is being implemented.”

Beyond crypto, numerous other sites such as Discord, DoorDash and Social Blade have also been affected.
