It was the first time such an incident had transpired.

The massive tear upwards seems to have put pressure on Coinbase's infrastructure, with the exchange saying on Twitter that users were experiencing issues logging into their accounts because of record traffic. At around 1:00 p.m. ET, Coinbase reported that the ID system was failing to complete "for a significant number of customers" because of high traffic.

Coinbase, the largest platform for buying and selling cryptocurrencies in the U.S., has experienced several outages as the price of bitcoin has skyrocketed to new highs. Even Saturday afternoon, Coinbase listed the price of a bitcoin around $15,000, while the CoinDesk hovered around $14,700.

Subsequently, Coinbase site was down for support for quite a long time.

The news of Coinbase success came as another Bitcoin mining firm suffered a major hack. What that meant was that the rate got magnified by over 20% in the course of a single day.

The rise for Bitcoin over the course of 2017 has been exponential. By September, it was valued at around $3,250 and has risen rapidly in the months that have followed.
