In the last 24 hours, Bitcoin briefly spiked to a two week high of USD6690, however has since levelled off to trade at around USD6400.
However on Wednesday, major cryptocurrency trading platform BitMEX said it suffered a distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack, as confirmed on its official Twitter account.
BitMEX has since said: “Services are back to normal. Combination of DDoS and price action caused heavy load on data mirrors. Trading and [market data] feed response times remained normal while data fetches were slow. We are scaling that system and moving it out of the critical path of login”.
