The shut down of eToro’s platform happened as crypto markets plummeted with over $200 billion in a day, leading to traders expressing frustration on social media.
Some of etoro’s followers on Twitter responded to the situation:
The market is all red, best time to do some buying, buy the dips and you are down all day?
@eToro can you fix the deposit funds…I mean each month I have an issue either you can’t buy, you can’t deposit funds..definetely going to down rate the app in the store.
After yesterday’s issues, today @eToro is having technical issues AGAIN! 2 days in a row, what a joke. Unless they improve the servers I think they will lose many customers in the next days.
