Hotbit app not working? It's a known issue after recent outage and recovery will be slower than website

Lately, everyone is looking to invest in cryptocurrencies after hearing stories about individuals becoming millionaires in a short span of time.

Individuals can become crypto holders in just a matter of a few minutes which is why interest in these digital currencies is at an all-time high.

Moreover, investing in the crypto market has become easier than ever thanks to the vast selection of apps and websites available such as Hotbit.

Unfortunately, crypto trading platforms often crash when there’s a massive influx of users such as the recent incedent with WazirX.

Now it appears that many Hotbit app users are also claiming that the app is not working. We’ve shared some reports below:

Similarly, many reports flooded Twitter a few hours ago indicating that the Hotbit website is down and not working.

At the time of writing, the website appears to be up and working as usual. But the Hotbit app isn’t playing well still. Users are seeing the following screen when opening it.


Fortunately, Hotbit is already hot on its heels and has confirmed that they’re already working on recovering the app. Meanwhile, users are suggested to visit the website to continue trading.


Hotbit has also shared a detailed timeline for the service’s recovery process wherein it has confirmed that users will have access to functions such as login, registration, the browsing of assets and data today, i.e. May 10.

On May 11 it will resume spot trading services for all assets and on May 12 it will relaunch the service of investment section, including functions like purchase, redemption, and asset transfers.

Deposits and withdrawals will also resume for certain mainnets on May 14 and Hotbit claims that the same will be the case for all mainnets no later than May 21 if all other things are fine.
