How to Solve Etherscan Down or Outage Issues:
We have tried pinging Etherscan.io using our servers in diverse locations and the website returned the above results.
If Etherscan.io is down for us too there is nothing you can do except waiting. Probably the server is overloaded, down or unreachable because of a network problem, outage or website maintenance is in progress.
If the site is UP for us but you however cannot access it, try one of our following solutions:
1. It might be Browser Related:
To solve Browser related issues that might make the site/server down for you, do a full Browser refresh of this site. You can do this by holding down CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your browser.
This trick works perfectly on Chrome, Firefox, Brave, Opera, Safari and whatever default browser comes with your Windows nowadays lol.
2. Clear Your Cookies and Cache.
The contents of all modern sites and apps today are usually cached. This means a copy is stored in your browser as long as you have visited that page before. This is to make it easier to access when next you visit that page. This might be a problem especially if the page was down last time you checked.
You might need to clear that out of your browser memory for the site to load properly.
3. Fix DNS Problems
Domain Name System (DNS) is what allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words ( e.g .com, .us) in order to be remembered easily. This is usually provided by your Internet Service Provider.
To fix this, clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has.

@LefterisJP This is a somber reminder to run ur own #ethereum node with @rotkiapp or anything else that deals with a blockchain Not only has @etherscan introduced mandatory API keys. They are very strictly rate limiting to what looks like less than 1 call/sec They claim 5/sec in their docs https://t.co/ph3KKhkqqF
@hitchcott @LefterisJP @rotkiapp @etherscan Oh, another idea! You could also make a bunch of decoy requests to other accounts with real balances that you do not own, so you hide obfuscate which addresses actually control.
@LefterisJP @hitchcott @rotkiapp @etherscan Thank you so much Chris. It's a good meta issue to be considering and then probably making smaller issues for the invididual tasks once a strategy is decided.
@siddiqui06 @Mohsin_71 @ethereum @etherscan @BTCTN Eth not going down...which is good time to buy and hold eth or other coin to hold?
@LefterisJP @hitchcott @rotkiapp @etherscan No. Privacy preservation comes from keeping your data locally and not saving in blockfolio/bitcointax what have you. Sure querying less remote external services is better for your privacy, but it's impossible to not query any external services.
@LefterisJP @hitchcott @rotkiapp @etherscan Interesting but that would also add to the rate limiting! :) But yeah good ideas in this thread. May pop them into an issue for future reference later!
@LefterisJP @tayvano_ @hitchcott @rotkiapp @etherscan @MyCrypto @spencecoin It's not one app. It would be every single copy of Rotki used by users who don't have their own node But would also be mixed with copies to etherscan and alethio
@LefterisJP @hitchcott @rotkiapp @etherscan @MyCrypto Any docs or anything? I won't use it if it's not intended to be used by external apps. But then it may not be a good idea to have it open like this. @spencecoin ?
