The cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase was down again on Friday for about an hour, two days after a major system outage that kept many users from accessing their bitcoin wallets as prices on the digital coin fluctuated wildly between $9,200 and $11,400.
A status update on the website said the company would perform maintenance on the site starting at 1:10 p.m. PT.
At 2:01 p.m., the company said on Twitter that maintenance was complete, though some users responded that they still couldn't log in.
Maintenance has been completed and all services are fully functional.
The maintenance was most likely to address the issues leading to Wednesday's outage, which prevented many users from accessing their Coinbase accounts until Thursday morning.
Bitcoin is trading at about $10,900 a coin, up 9% from an opening price near $10,000.
Coinbase did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
