ヨーロッパで Visa のシステムに障害が発生し、カード決済が利用できず混乱が生じています。一方ビットコインは 2009 年の起ち上げ以降、中断することなく 9 年間動作し続けています。
Visa has said that their card payments are experiencing disruptions across Britain and Europe, the BBC reports today, June 1.
Visa, which handles over 150,000 mln transactions a day, tweeted about the service disruption, noting that they will keep updating as they resolve the situation:
We are currently experiencing a service disruption which is preventing some Visa transactions in Europe from being processed. We are investigating the cause and working as quickly as possible to resolve the situation. We will keep you updated.— Visa UK (@VisaUK) 2018年6月1日
In comparison, the Bitcoin’s (BTC) decentralized network has been functional 99.99 percent of the time since its inception on Jan. 3, 2009.
