CoinWallet Conducts ‘Stress Pre-test’; Real ‘Stress Test’ to Begin on September 10
The Bitcoin network took a hit yesterday as CoinWallet ran a “stress pre-test” for about thirty minutes resulting in a “2-day delay and a 50 MB backlog” according to CoinWallet CCO James Wilson. Wilson said that the company will be running a major “stress test” on the Bitcoin network next week, on Thursday September 10 starting at 10 AM GMT.
“The pre-test lasted only about 30 minutes and created a 2-day backlog. As you can imagine, September 10th will indeed be stressful.”
