On Saturday, MintPal suffered from a DDoS attack on their website, pushing the Version Two implementation by parent-company MooPay LTD to the front of the line. MintPal signaled the problem with a tweet from their official twitter account.
“The ongoing attack against [MintPal] and the resulting effects are our current primary priority. We will be launching V2 during the week. Instead of giving you a hard time, we’ll let you know shortly before. Good news is? Ready to go.”
At this point, a few voices were calling for immediate implementation of the Version Two platform. Green continued by dispelling any questions on why they couldn’t deploy Version Two immediately:
“Deploying at 0129 with a skeleton staff does not make much sense however, especially with an ongoing attack. We have internally scheduled a deployment window however. We’re also working on our way of saying sorry for the delays, but as we have said on many occasions – we would rather have a number of delays as opposed to a number of bugs and an insecure and instable platform.”

Version Two will not only promise to beef up security, but add a few new coins to the lineup.
As of right now, no coins will be removed, although there are plans to get rid of a few coin pairings on the exchange. Green said that the company wants to give all coins currently on the platform a chance to prove themselves before making that decision. Once the platform migration begins, the team hopes to have no downtime to the MintPal site providing users with a seamless experience.
“Everything in V2 is real-time. Trade history, order placing, order notifications, order book, etc – you won’t need to refresh to see anything. It has been built from the ground up for speed and security, and we’re especially proud of the work that we have done.”
