Many users complained that they were facing the issue while using the app. Where some people not able to sell or buy the bitcoins others were not even getting through the logging page. The app started to hang and showing an unexpected error due to a heavy load on the server. The issue lasted for hours and users were not connected to their bitcoin wallet for long.
