#2022 Bitcoin trader hit by "severe DDoS attack" as bitcoin price nears all-time high
Top Bitcoin trading platform Bitfinex was hit yesterday late night by what its experts categorized as a "severe DDoS attack."

The attack hit around 21:30 UTC and lasted for about an hour before the Bitfinex crew managed to get everything under control.
