As of this afternoon, Bitcoin Central went down. It seems that it's been down consistently for the past 3 hours, judging by the statistics on bitcoincharts.com.

I was just wondering if anyone had heard anything about this. Are there any accouncements? Anything on IRC, perhaps?

I'm glad I had just purchased BTC though - wouldn't want to slump straight into another downtime period with EUR in my hand seeing the price rise with every passing hour Tongue

EDIT: BTC Central is being DDoS'd, apparently. They tweeted about it.

Beware - Bitcoin Central is associated with the same folks running Instawallet, and they're not handling things well in regards to the latest issues with Instawallet..

They just tweeted again, saying that any verified user can send them an email and get access to an 'alternate url'. Quite assuring, as this means that the problem isn't with them but could likely really be a DDoS.

Yeah, I'll keep that in mind, but for now they've got the benefit of my doubt Wink

Agreed, after days of uncertainty, I can see they are trying their best to regain their reputation. Quite reassuring, at least for me. Anyways, watching the situation closely is inevitable at the moment.
