Some Coinbase users were quick to complain about the outage, especially with this latest issue only being one among several others. In fact, throughout last year, Coinbase faced several different types of such connectivity issues.
Earlier, on 25 November, the exchange reported that it experienced “elevated error rates on some backend systems due to an Amazon AWS outage.” At the time, the situation even prompted Coinbase CEO Brain Armstrong to publish a tweet asking users to be patient:
We’re working hard to add additional capacity (both in servers and customer support) to deal with increased traffic. Thank you for your patience during this time. And thank you to the team at Coinbase working hard to serve our customers! Bull runs can be exciting and stressful.
