Due to Hardware Failure LocalBitcoins is offline
Global bitcoin marketplace LocalBitcoins is operating again following over six hours of downtime it attributed to a “hardware failure”.
The company announced the outage at 20:22 UTC yesterday.
By 03:02 it said the service was “back up and running”, though it appears some site functionality – including user logins – is still problematic.
Founded in 2012, the peer-to-peer marketplace matches local bitcoin buyers and sellers across 246 countries.
Users have the option of transacting online or in person.
