Coinbase Pro BTC/USD Trading Book Issues Reported, OpenCart Plugin Released

New Investigation Underway: Coinbase Pro Having Issues With US Trading Book

There's an uproar on Twitter right now. Coinbase Pro is investigating a possible hack.

No knows for sure what's going on, but there are definite problems on the Bitcoin USD order book. Of course, Skeptics are stating all sorts of reasons for the current issue on the large exchange platform. Some people are claiming it's a Cyberattack, others are saying is related to the current approval pushback for the Bitcoin ETF. And still, others are claiming it has to do with whales who are trading behind the scenes before the price plummets.

As of now, we are still in the dark on what happened, but it appears they have resolved the issue. In order to resolve it, they cleared all open orders on the BTC/USD order book.

As of now, we'll have to wait and see if they release more information. Meanwhile the twitter-sphere will continue to speculate that it was a hack.

Coinbase Commerce Releases OpenCart Plugin

For some positive news from the Coinbase family, they have released a new plugin in their Github. Coinbase Commerce released WooCommerce plugin last week and today announced they will be releasing an OpenCart plugin. The open-sourced plug-in is available now on Github. The new plug-in will accept Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash, and that is it for now.

Final Thoughts

As for the issues on Coinbase Pro, several users took to twitter to say that they can't cancel their purchase order – leaving them susceptible, in the case of an actual hack – something that is unacceptable. It would be helpful if Coinbase Support could let users know a little more information as things are happening. For many other users they see it as standard procedures of operation, as technical issues often occur – for others, it's simply the statement “Typical.”
