After the exchange launched the pioneering futures on Sunday, its front-end interface got damaged almost immediately. Due to the heavy traffic, leading to the concerns that the launch would not become successful.
Anyhow, in a series of Twitter updates, CBOE said that the technological issues had “no impact” on the “orderly trading” of its new product.
Bitcoin prices immediately rocketed following the release, correcting upwards following a dip below $13,000 in the run-up to Sunday.
At press time, almost 20 percent daily growth has contributed an average value of $16,700 per coin, according to Coindelite.
CBOE described in a new blog post:
“The launch was smooth, although our website experienced some issues due to an overwhelming number of hits looking for the trading data.”
Major exchanges like Coinbase, Poloniex, and others have felt strange and experienced temporary delays and crashes. Coinbase has promised to hire the support staffs and improve back-end performance as the principal US exchange venue.
