Over the past few weeks, traders have been complaining about slow trade executions while using the U.S. based cryptocurrency exchange Poloniex. The trading platform says it has recently been suffering from many severe distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks alongside a surge of mainstream growth.

Lately across social media platforms and cryptocurrency focused forums, there have been users complaining about trading on the exchange Poloniex. Back in April, as the digital currency Ripple XRP began to show its first signs of a bull run the exchange experienced a lot of customers complaining about downtime and trade executions.

I guess Poloniex should do a server uprgade. I think more traders now are using their platform, and it can't handle huge amount of transaction. And they should upgrade their IT infrastructure as well because it involves a lot of money. So they should get a good IT support 24/7. They can't reason out that they are under DDoS, they should be prepared with this kind of scenario.

what surprises me is why did it take so long to DDOS Poloniex?
don't get me wrong-I'm not pro DDOSing an exchange ,but this one has been moving forward in leaps in bounds
and suffered zero setbacks or attacks or hack attempts (as far as I know)
while the rest of the competitor exchanges have been involved in all sort of calamities
