top of page Website Suffers From DDoS Spam Attack Causing A Time Out

Bitcoin Ordinals’ website has continued to be hit with a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack, causing the website to time out. Critics who like to accuse inscriptions of “spamming” the Bitcoin network see it as an ironic form of justice. On Dec. 27, Ordinals creator Casey Rodarmor flagged the DDoS attack on the website — claiming it’s the first time it has happened since its launch in January. A DDoS attack is a malicious spam attempt to disrupt normal traffic on a targeted server or network by overwhelming the target or its surrounding infrastructure with a flood of internet traffic. The Ordinals website has been unstable throughout the day. It is currently down at the time of publication.
