Its up right now. Maybe it just went down for few minutes while you were checking, you should wait for some time before accusing them of scam.

Easy buddy, try checking your internet connection if your connection is good, that might be the problem why you are having a hard time accessing or even loging-in Poloniex. Also you may want to use a site tester, it a site that will tell if its just you having trouble reaching that site that you wish to browse or the site is really down for the mean time downforeveryoneorjustme.com

there is a massive scale dumping going on in the altcoin market and that means a lot of orders are being placed and that is a lot of requests to a weak server they have. so they go down a lot these days.

although i have to say i am using their public API to get the charts and i have not experienced any downtime in previous days and i update that thing regularly

Poloniex is up and running but it seems very slow. I cannot even trade. When I made my order, it just stuck up.Are they  on DDOS attack again? Hope someone from their staff can explain whats happening.

We've been under continuous DDoS attack which inevitably affects other areas of operations. We're mitigating as fast as we can.

I agree with you . Because not as long as a website can run normally. There may be maintenance that requires it. If polo is really experiencing the scam thing will happen a very big bitcoin price drop. we know that polo is one of the major exchange today.

Yes they are on DDOS attack, i saw the last update on Twitter We've been under continuous DDoS attack
which inevitably affects other areas of operations. We're mitigating as fast as we can.
And I think we just can wait and see until they finish their problem and there are not bad to our coins on there
we hope they don't scam their costumers.  Grin

I shouldn't worry about it? I lost ~10% in less then an hour. That's not funny.

Also they say it is a ddos attack, but who really knows? They have provided 0 proof of that, and TradingBots were still able to trade as far as i know.

It is so embarassing that we still have this happening on the biggest altcoin exchange. It really shouldn't be possible, people are losing extreme amounts of money due to this.

Its up right now. Maybe it just went down for few minutes while you were checking, you should wait for some time before accusing them of scam.

It was up the entire time, but you just couldn't trade. Trollbox was working just fine, but i think you could only place orders through Api's? not sure. I couldn't place orders at all.

Well, if they won't improve their server power, they can see a lot of members getting out of their platform.

There were many complaints on their customer support as well, as they take an awful amount of time to check on the documents (Source: Facebook Friends who are big volume traders)

Been using Polo for about a week and a half, there has been 2 DDoS attacks this week, but nothing drastic outside of a bit of lag hear and there. Most of the people crying in the troll box are Newbs, i saw a guy blatantly say he made a mistake and transfered LTC to his BTC wallet, then complained for an hour about how he got his money stolen by Polo. Alot of the stuff in that chatbox is pure comedy i treat it as entertainment.

i'm considering switching to bittrex or kraken, does anyone know if the issues polo has faced in the past 1-2 weeks are also being experienced by these two exchanges?

I agree their servers are really bad and I get that it pisses off people but as long as the volume remains at Poloniex the majority of traders will remain at Poloniex.

well, they do have the bad service but the volume is still very high. I think that all those volumes are fake and it can not prove anything. Poloniex is following mt.gox path. Save your money while you still can

I don't think that poloniex will become the new mt. gox. They have been in business for way too long for such a thing to happen. And based on what do you think the volume on Poloniex is fake?
Regardless, you should never keep your full portfolio on an exchange just for security measures.
