Global bitcoin marketplace LocalBitcoins is operating again following over six hours of downtime it attributed to a "hardware failure".
Two weeks ago, the Helsinki-based site announced upgrades to its servers that would log users out. It is unclear if the two events are linked.
Founded in 2012, the peer-to-peer marketplace matches local bitcoin buyers and sellers across 246 countries. Users have the option of transacting online or in person.
The company had not responded to a request for comment by press time.
