크라켄 Exchange는 귀찮은 시스템 업그레이드 후 다시 온라인

크라켄, the fifth-largest cryptocurrency exchange, has resumed service after scheduled maintenance that was supposed to take two hours but instead took two days.

The unexpectedly long downtime agitated many users, since not only trading but also withdrawals were unavailable for the period, during which coin prices gyrated on bearish news coming out of South Korea.

As a penance of sorts, 교환, based in San Francisco, is waiving trading fees for all its clients through the end of the month, it said in a blog post published Saturday. 하나, the waiver does not apply to non-margin trades.

A few more hours went by, with a couple updates from Kraken. 그때, ...에서 15:27 UTC, it looked like there was a light at the end of tunnel, with Kraken telling users:

We are in the final stage of installing the upgrade now. We are getting close but hard to give an exact ETA since it depends on how the final testing goes.

No such luck. Three and a half hours later, Kraken said it now had toresolve a number of issues that came up during final testingand that it could not give a hard estimate for when that would be done.

The pattern of periodic updates, but no resumption of service, continued. “예, this is our new record for downtime since we launched in 2013,one update confessed. “아니, we’re not proud of it.

All the while, users were unable to access their funds. 당연, many of them took to social media to voice their complaints.

‘Elusive bug

에서 20:15 UTC Friday, Kraken said thatan elusive bugwas still holding up the relaunch of the site. In its next message, Saturday morning at 09:32, it said service would resumeshortlybut all orders had been canceled.

최종적으로, ...에서 11:30 토요일, Kraken’s systems were back online, and by 15:47 trading had resumed.

In its subsequent mea culpa blog post, Kraken gave a general explanation for the delays:

Our system is replicated in development, where all tests passed. However when the new engine was moved to the production environment, regression tests picked up a condition that proved quite difficult to track down.

A more detailed breakdown of what happened, and how Kraken intends to prevent such snafus from reoccurring, will come in the next few days, 이 회사는 밝혔다.
