The Block contacted Bitfinex for further details but didn’t immediately receive a response.

The status page listed the exchange’s web server, trading engine, backend workers, WebSockets and FIX gateways as “under maintenance.” Bitfinex last experienced a similar outage in September, according to the status log on its website.

Bitfinex is hosting El Salvador’s highly anticipated — and much delayed – listing of crypto tokens this year. Chief technology officer Paolo Ardoino told The Block in an interview last week he hopes the Salvadoran listing will be just the first of many similar fundraisings by companies and governments.
