Weiss Ratings Gives Bitcoin C+, Sparks South Korean DDoS Revenge

South Korean Bitcoin "Investors" allegedly launched the DDoS attack that shut down Weiss Ratings' website after the agency gave the cryptocurrency a 'C+' rating. According to a press release citing "Numerous mentions on social media" about plans to attack Weiss, staff were "Up all night" attempting to restore normal service after the release of ratings for Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies Thursday. "Earlier commentary on social media expressed considerable fear we were about to release negative ratings on their preferred currencies," founder Martin D. Weiss commented, "So this may be an attempt to thwart our release today." Bitcoin Cash fared only slightly worse than Bitcoin itself with C-, while Ethereum scored a B and Dogecoin C, placing it similarly just below Bitcoin in terms of providence.
