For a while Thursday evening, Purse.io was inaccessible. The website was completely missing with only a blank screen and a message.
Purse.io allows merchants to sell products for bitcoin, provide discounts for Amazon.com buying, and unites buyers with bitcoin with those with purchasing with Amazon.com gift cards. Just not for a period of time on Thursday evening.
Users were met only with "Error establishing a database connection". We've reached out for details and have not heard back, but the platform returned and appears to be operating without issue.
