Chain Radio which has suffered from a major DDOS attack that has brought the online streaming service dedicated to cryptocurrency offline seems to be making a come back tomorrow morning we’ve learned from a blog post on the Chain Radio site.
Rockstar one of the two station managers wrote:
Starting tomorrow, Monday, September 22nd we should be fully back online at 10am Eastern and it is our hope that we have overcome these attacks.
He further went in to the details as to why the streaming service can not simply place streaming servers behind a CloudFlare protection as many other sites have been.
Unlike many other sites in the world of Bitcoin land we are operating a fleet of streaming servers which can not be simply placed behind the protection of CloudFlare. When someone is attacking our servers we are in a constant state of battle blocking IP ranges, blocking specific IPs and trying to keep everything online.
The site which operates at a loss has taken a major beating over the past several weeks from others who have performed massive DDOS attacks against a range of cryptocurrency sites.
It will be interesting to see if CryptRadio which launches on October 1st and uses a streaming provider versus rolling a streaming solution internally will suffer from the same issues or how Bit-FM will handle these sort of potential attacks in the future once it comes to fruition as well.
