The Bitfinex crypto exchange stopped working and announced a distributed denial of service (DDoS) network attack.

No details are yet known, the platform will inform about the incident's progress.

The exchange has already become the object of DDoS attacks. A similar incident happened in February 2017, but it practically did not affect the platform. However, in December of the same year, Bitfinex, like today, went offline for some reason as a result of a DDoS attack.

In August 2016, the platform lost 800 user bitcoins as a result of hacking. A successful attack on one of the largest trading platforms then negatively affected the price of the first cryptocurrency.
