Poloniex Exchange To Go Offline For Several Hours
According to the post made on their official twitter account
As part of our efforts to improve your Poloniex experience, we’ll be conducting maintenance Friday, Feb 22nd at 22:00 UTC. We expect this to take several hours. During that time the site will be offline and trading will be suspended. Your funds will be safe during maintenance.
Poloniex further added there is no plan or what so ever reason to cancel already open orders. In the sense that immediately its site is up and running all open orders will be treated.
We do not plan to cancel open orders. When the site is back online, markets will be in post-only mode for a short time before we reopen trading. During this time, you can cancel open orders and create new orders, but no orders will be filled.
It should be of note that is is not the first time that the United States, base exchange is carrying out such maintenance on it platforn as cryptonews9ja report late last year December. And that there is no specific hour, day or even week “the maintenance will last several hours” as stated in their official website.
We’re using this downtime to improve Poloniex in two key ways. First, we’re migrating to better data centers to improve reliability and uptime. Second, we’re modernizing our platform so we can deliver the best possible trading experience.
Keep up with us as will bring to you related update concerning Poloniex Exchange.
