Since the last Thursday, we are experiencing truly phenomenal behaviour of the cryptocurrency market. Over the last few days, Bitcoin price significantly went down, whereas Bitcoin Cash skyrocketed up to five times.

The affair had a huge impact on a range of crypto exchanges and Changelly as well. Many of our users got frustrated facing abnormal delays and transaction failures. We understand it and sincerely apologize for the anxiety and waiting seemed endless. In this article, we would like to tell you everything as it happened these days.
