Vircurex down since days?


#1

Hi Vircurex displays only a message "This website is under heavy load

We’re sorry, too many people are accessing this website at the same time. We’re working on this problem. Please try again later."

for some days now. Which kind of problems do they have? I transferred some peercoins to the website right before this problem occured which is even stranger for me.

I hope they aren’t run away with my money…

Vircurex was hacked back in 2013 :frowning:

You should not really be using that site at all as people waiting on 1000’s BTC and LTC to come back to them.

I used to chat to Kumala a bit back in the day, especially when he ran cryptostocks, but he has since been LONG GONE so do not expect any support.

AGAIN PLEASE DO NOT USE VIRCUREX

See this top-pinned post, which is obviously from you:

Great, Vircurex is listed as first entry in the list, although it is considered as compromised for 3 years now.

So I problably won’t see my money again.

Sry about that post i have updated it now.

Vircurex comes and goes… they were wanting to get users to start using the site again, taking fees off trades to pay back the people, so give it a week or two and it might come back on but dont get your hopes up. and yes as soon as back on i advise you withdraw all from the site.

You said the you had contact to the owner of vircurex. Do you still have any e-mail address or any other contact data from him?
Does he still have any connections to cryptostocks so that I could contact him from there?

Only contact I had for him was via bitcointalk forum

last active in 2015 though. no cryptostocks was less reliable than vircurex at getting hold of Kumala.

Sorry
