Something's Slightly Wrong in CryptoLand...

By rah | rah | 8 Dec 2020


I am sure it is a coincidence and I am certainly not criticising, but a couple of things went amiss over the last 24 hours.

From time to times things go wrong. Murphy's Law (also known as Sod's Law in the UK) states with Newtonian precision

If something can go wrong it invariably does

Such is life!

So what am I talking about?

The first issue was with Cointiply one of the best known faucets out there. Something went very wrong yesterday. My log in attempts frequently timed out and the PTC ad recatpcha's weren't loading or in a couple of cases when they did load they were quite a sight to see. See the below screenshot.

The good news is that they seem to have rectified the situation as it is working again fine this morning. They even offered a redeemable bonus with the code IT'S ALL OK NOW, which is an acknowledgement of the difficulties that I (among many) faced. I appreciated their humour and am happy they resolved it.

The second issue is that when I woke up this morning I found that our beloved Publish0x had some difficulties with payments. Again this is certainly not a criticism and it has happened before. I received my Ethereum and BAT payouts but am still awaiting my Loopring. I suspect I am not the only one in this position?

So for those of you who are relatively new here I am writing to assure you that the good people of Publish0x will resolve this. And for those of you who are not so new you know that Publish0x are good to their word. Their track record, accountability and transparency is second to none.

PLEASE NOTE DESPITE THE MISHAPS OF THE LAST 24 HOURS I STILL COMPLETELY ENDORSE BOTH COINTIPLY AND PUBLISH0X

A short post today, but just wanted to be reassuring and mention it in passing. I am fairly confident that we are not standing on the threshold of the Twilight Zone.

Have a good day. Stay safe and stay well. The vaccine has arrived and there is light at the end of the tunnel.
