The two largest cryptocurrency exchanges, Binance and Coinbase, reported about technical failures just as Bitcoin and all major altcoins showed rapid growth.
The vast majority of cryptocurrency assets are falling rapidly, and the technical problems of Coinbase and Binance only make things worse.
The price collapse has not gone unnoticed for the two largest cryptocurrency platforms. American Coinbase and Binance reported technical glitches due to increased workload.
The collapse of Coinbase and Binance
At 4 a.m. PST, Coinbase, a popular digital asset trading platform in the United States, went offline. Exchange clients could not transfer coins to other users. The crash affected all assets listed on the platform, including BTC, ETH, Bitcoin Cash, and etc. At the time of this writing, the issue has been resolved, with the technical department of the exchange trying to figure out what caused it.
Binance has also reported an issue on its servers. And users confirmed that they couldn’t access the Binance.com domain. Binance quickly corrected the problem too and got the website back online.
It is still difficult to say what caused the sale in the cryptocurrency asset market. However, news of a police raid on South Korean Bithumb offices and technical problems at the two largest sites could have exacerbated the bearish sentiment.
Bitcoin and altcoins plummet in price

Ethereum (ETH) has moved away from $ 500 and is rapidly moving towards $ 440 (minus 7% in a matter of hours).
Other cryptocurrencies from the top ten, including XRP, CHAINLINK, BCH, also suffer impressive losses in the range of 6 to 11%.
