CoinGeek.com back up after DDoS attack

As you’re probably aware we were hit with a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack which took some time to get under control.

You know you are doing something right when people want to silence you and will try anything to do so but this is prime example of why Bitcoin needs mature judgement. It’s impossible to build an industry or a business on a platform run by this kind of thinking.

Thank you to those on social media who help spread the word and apologies for not having our CoinGeek.com news site as well prepared as it should have been for one of these stress tests.

Thankfully we have a great group of techs working behind the scenes who worked through the night to get us back online.

Now that we’re back, please take some a moment to read a few of the great articles you might have missed while we were away.
