Binance claims that it is having trouble staying online due to an influx of new users\u2013but for some reason, that led the Binance exchange to suspend withdrawals?\u00a0 https:\/\/twitter.com\/binance\/status\/1355102905171406849 It is not quite clear why new users joining the exchange resulted in a withdrawal suspension for all users on the platform, but regardless, it happened. \u201cWe almost ran out of DOGE coin addresses,\u201d said Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao. \u201cOur system couldn\u2019t generate new addresses fast enough to match new users coming in. It\u2019s crazy.\u201d\u00a0 The recent speculative craze that has spread across internet communities and investing forums is encouraging retail investors to invest in meme stocks\u2013including Dogecoin. Shortly after the internet army set its sights on Dogecoin, it pumped 800%. Brokers are calling these investment strategies irrational and irregular, and have taken it upon themselves to halt, terminate, or restrict trading on any asset that may be considered a meme stock. Earlier today, Robinhood placed restrictions on individuals looking to invest in digital currency via Robinhood. Coinbase and Kraken can\u2019t handle the traffic https:\/\/twitter.com\/CoinbaseSupport\/status\/1355201283888570372 Binance is not the only platform that crumbled under increased web-traffic, earlier this morning both Coinbase and Kraken also experienced outages. Coinbase said it was suffering from "performance degradation," and confirmed that the \u201cbuy digital currency with USD\u201d feature on their platform had crashed during the service disruption, and Kraken exchange reported that it was experiencing \u201cconnectivity issues as a result of heavy traffic. https:\/\/twitter.com\/krakensupport\/status\/1354835340033458176 \u00a0 When will it change? This isn\u2019t the first time that we\u2019ve seen major digital currency exchanges suffer outages and service disruptions during periods of high traffic. Almost every time the digital currency markets heat up and funds start pouring into exchanges, the major brokers and exchanges experience performance issues. Although the exchanges and brokers are often regretful and apologetic of the incident, platform outages don\u2019t detrimentally affect service providers like they do investors and traders.\u00a0\u00a0 Some individuals, especially early investors, will be looking to sell while the markets are hot and the prices are rising, however, if they keep their funds on Binance, Coinbase, or Kraken, there is a high probability that they won\u2019t be able to sell at that critical moment. You would think that the user-experience provided by these exchanges would improve over time, however, these platforms suffer from the same issues over and over again at the consumer's expense.
