Common startup wisdom is that having to deal with too many users is a "good problem" to have, along with notions of launching fast first and solving scale later.
But of course sustained rapid user growth without a robust preexisting scalability approach means you're caught with your pants down, and it's a struggle to put them back up, at least until new user traffic starts to die down.
I am honestly torn. I have used kraken to make several thousands of dollars, but I am always at awe with myself for using such a shitty site. If any of the other exchanges could figure out how to validate faster, you would see an influx from people heading there just to avoid the common cloudflare errors that kraken users are used to seeing. I am tired of putting orders for thousands of dollars and having to refresh multiple times to see if they went through...
Kraken CEO promised major improvements in Dec (https://np.reddit.com/r/BitcoinMarkets/comments/7eboh7/sugge...). What came of it?
If the update will do good, I be happy. However, almost a day in time were market really changed. I wonder what will happen with all the margin traders.
Am I the only one who is seriously thinking that the guys took money from all of us and they run away. From 2h 'update' is now 2days 'update'. Sorry, I realy dont believe this story...
Been signed up with kraken almost 5 months.....still have not traded a dollar because i could not log in. Took 2 months to get an email about the log in....worst site in the history of the internet. Mean while a friend that i told about kraken has made thousands and i am still not verified. Only takes 2 months for customer service to get back with you. Fuck kraken!
This isn't news? It's been basically unusable since Thanksgiving...
Has been really flaky for a while, I guess that's why they're having scheduled downtime.
Now however - after 6 hours - I'm starting to worry about my USD150. ;-)
worst exchange by a country mile.
