Trust Wallet, the self-custody crypto wallet provider, announced disruptions to its Bitcoin services and warned users may experience failed transactions following a surge in activity on the Bitcoin blockchain.
In a post shared on X, Trust Wallet said the company is experiencing a BTC node issue caused by an increase in transactions per block on the Bitcoin network. As a result, there is mounting pressure on the nodes, which has caused instability across providers.
📢 Important BTC Node Update
Dear Trust Wallet Users,
We want to inform you that we're experiencing a BTC node issue. Here are the details:
Cause: Increased transactions per block in the Bitcoin network are putting pressure on nodes, causing instability across providers.…

Furthermore, the announcement said users might experience missing transaction history for the Bitcoin-blockbook chain for up to 6 hours. In addition, Trust Wallet said some other users may see failed transactions.
However, the wallet provider assured followers that it is working to address the issue quickly. The surge in network activity on the Bitcoin blockchain follows an increase in investors’ confidence in the crypto market over the past few weeks.
In particular, Bitcoin, the world’s largest cryptocurrency by market cap, breached the $34,000 level and soared as high as $38,000.
The majority of the push came on the back of increased speculation about a spot Bitcoin ETF approval. This is so as several reports noted the changing attitude of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission towards the ETF filings.
Large institutional firms like BlackRock are among the companies to have filed for a spot Bitcoin ETF. Many in crypto circles predict an ETF approval would significantly increase the capital inflow into the crypto market and onboard non-crypto natives.
Turning to CoinMarketCap, data shows Bitcoin’s trading volume has slowed in the past 24 hours following a 9% decline after registering $20.4 billion.
At the same time, the digital asset also saw a 0.88% price drop in the same period. Currently, the token is worth $37,867.
