When crypto starts going parabolic, it’s common to see big name websites start to fail and suffer outages as users and traders flock in droves to use them.

Coinbase, the world’s second largest exchange, is no stranger of these events. Their outage is reminiscent of other bull runs–prompting pundits today to celebrate.

“Coinbase app is down, we are SO back,” wrote Will Clemente, crypto analyst and co-founder of Reflexivity Research.
