Bitcoin, OmiseGo, Qtum and EOS temporarily unavailable for exchange on Exodus

Exodus, the blockchain asset and cryptocurrency wallet and exchange platform had announced early today on September 10, 2017, at 4:19 AM Pacific Time that Bitcoin, OmiseGo, Qtum, and EOS became temporarily unavailable for exchange. All assets were safe through the down time.

We are now happy to report that the unavailability of exchange on Bitcoin has been fixed but OmiseGo, Qtum, and EOS are still temporarily unavailable for exchange.

Although the company reported that all assets are safe during this time, this had certainly frustrated some users.

To note, sending and receiving assets remained fully operational, again, this DID NOT impact sending and receiving Bitcoin, OmiseGo, Qtum, and EOS.

Exodus team said: “We have determined the cause of Bitcoin, OmiseGo, Qtum, and EOS being unavailable for exchange. Testing is happening now with the exchange to be sure these assets are delivered properly. We are looking to have these back up and running available on late Monday, Sept. 11, 2017. We will post additional status updates as we get more information.”

However, it looks as if the company has fixed the Bitcoin exchange issue before their target date of Monday, September 11th, but the other select assets still remain unavailable for exchange.

Exodus partners with blockchain asset exchange ShapeShift to integrate the exchanging of coins directly within the Exodus application. ShapeShift remained fully operational during the down time.

The convenient exchange feature between BTC/ETH integrated within Exodus experienced 4-5 hours of downtime on Sunday morning.
