Maintenance on LiteBit means a cryptocurrency is currently unable to be bought or sold. There are multiple reasons why maintenance happens, and this article will explain some of them. LiteBit tries to minimize this downtime, but more often than not it is outside our control.
Most often our exchange partner, which we use to offer you cryptocurrencies, has an issue which causes maintenance on LiteBit. For example, they are sending an incorrect value of the price for the currency, which disrupts our systems.
LiteBit wallet maintenance
Sometimes the LiteBit wallets are in maintenance because this a mandatory update to the latest version: this often happens when a cryptocurrency is actively being developed and is getting a lot of updates. It is also possible our LiteBit wallets need to be synchronized. You don’t have to download any blockchain to use our LiteBit wallets, because LiteBit does this for you. This kind of maintenance is usually over very quickly.
The reason for maintenance not always known
We sadly cannot offer information on why something is in maintenance, but it is usually one of the above reasons. If a cryptocurrency or wallet is in maintenance for an abnormally long time, you can always contact our support for questions or keep an eye on our social media, where we sometimes announce long-term maintenance and updates.
