Unexpected Downtime Solved, Infrastructure Upgraded

Our server had gone down yesterday. The reason might be hardware failure. We are researching the issue and trying to get the site back up.

Update: the service is now up. The reason behind the downtime was network hardware failure. Now we have moved our servers to another hosting provider.

  1. We need more frequent updates! What is going on? Hardware failure? Don't you have redundant servers? How bad is it? What kind of backups do you have if data have been lost?

    1. No data has been lost. However we have to do serious improvements to our server infrastructure.

    2. It sure sounds like the server infrastructure is too vulnerable. How soon do you think the service will be available again?

  3. For a pretty bare-bones replacement, you can check out tradeyourbitcoin.com. There is no escrow service there though, but that's not so important for local trades.

  5. I feel that localBTC is preparing to leave the market. So many failures and very slow network so often !

  7. If you can't afford to buy food you shouldn't be using/investing/trading bitcoin.
