Cloudflare, an Internet service provider responsible for various functions, went down on Sunday morning (August 30), along with many crypto websites.

It has been reported that the company confirmed in a tweet that it experienced issues around 9:24 am Eastern Time caused by a third-party transit provider.

However, network stability returned around 11 am though Cloudflare said that it is still monitoring for other potential problems.

John Graham-Cumming, the Chief Technology Officer of Cloudflare, said:

“Today we saw a widespread Internet outage online that impacted many multiple providers. This was not a Cloudflare-specific outage. Level 3/CenturyLink was responsible for an outage that affected many Internet services, including Cloudflare. Cloudflare’s automated systems detected the problem and routed around them, but the extent of the problem required manual intervention as well.”

It has been analyzed that a large majority of the Internet uses Cloudflare.

News reports noted that several popular websites went down after Cloudflare’s network issues, including streaming site Hulu and cooperative gaming services PlayStation Network and Xbox Live.

As per the report, crypto websites were not immune.

Paolo Ardoino, the Chief Technology Officer of Bitfinex, said that the Cloudflare outage caused any connection issues to Bitfinex Sunday morning.

Thus, Cloudflare’s last outage made people question if crypto holders are truly decentralized, as that outage affected Bitcoin transactions.
