On September 13, users of the Bitcoin exchange Kraken were able to buy bitcoin for $8000, and sell for $12,000. The platform tested a new type of orders that contained a bug.

 

 

Kraken emphasized that users managed to complete transactions only at peak candlestick values, but they did not fill the entire price range with orders.

 

At the same time, all ‘'stop loss'' orders worked correctly.

 

Then the spokesperson of the exchange said that it was a single deal in the beta version for only $100, writes Cointelegraph.
