    I use both my phone and Laptop for trading.

    However last night both Kucoin, Binance & twitter crashed on me during the height of trading.

    My internet connection is good.

    Does it make a difference which PC I use.

    Thanks

    Exchanges are not draining your PC's ressources than your average website. So there is no reason for them to be less stable than other websites.

    That's either an issue with your web browser or the website itself. Probably the high volume of traffic caused the websites to crash. If it's your web browser sometimes clearing cookies etc can help it run better

    Last night trading volume and value hit quite a high.
    Welcome to the world of crypto.
    Quite often exchanges experience issues at peak volumes, it's a known across every exchange I've used.
    Some such as Coinbase seem to be notorious for it, almost as if they might make money from it.

    Definitely not the laptop hardware, it's a very good machine. what web browser are you using? If using IE switch to chrome or Firefox.

    Find it strange that Twitter crashed as well.
    Download malwarebytes and run a scan as well.
