OpenSea was down for some users earlier

The website is currently experiencing outages and is slow to load when it does.

UPDATE 1/20/2021 11:50 AM ET: OpenSea’s status page posted an update stating that a fix has been pushed out and that they’re currently monitoring the situation. “A fix has been implemented and we are monitoring the issue. Programmatic access remains disabled.”

If you are an NFT aficionado and use OpenSea for browsing and buying them, the website was recently down, as noticed by app researcher and Twitter user Jane Manchun Wong.

According to the OpenSea website, an outage was causing issues with both the website and the company’s API, which would affect Twitter’s new NFT feature.

After some clicking around, the website was definitely laggy for me, with the page occasionally returning a 504 error. Other users couldn’t even access the page.

OpenSea previously updated its status page and noted “We have identified the issue and a fix is being implemented.”

As of now, everything seems to be up and operational. It seems OpenSea has figured it out. However, its API seems to be experiencing issues still. We’ll keep a close eye on this and if anything changes, we’ll be sure to update this post.
