DDoS is short for distributed denial of service.
This is a form of cyber attack, common in the cryptocurrency and fintech world.
In a DDoS attack, an army of zombie computers flood the targeted website or network with superfluous service requests.
The huge volume of requests could cause the website to slow significantly or to crash altogether. Thus legitimate users of the website are denied service.
An example: A tweet from the Verge currency team said on May 21 “it appears some mining pools are under DDoS attack, and we are experiencing delay in our blocks, we are working to resolve this.”
