We are facing some performance issue in the past few hours with SteemConnect 2 API. This slowdown may affect some Steem third parties application that uses SteemConnect 2 Posting API, such as Utopian.io, d.Tube, dMania, Busy.org etc.
The hot signing module is not affected by this issue (https://v2.steemconnect.com/sign).
The team is still investigating and troubleshooting the problem. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience.
Edit: We made a couple of changes that resolved the performance issue on SteemConnect 2 Posting API. It's now back working fast, it should be faster than ever. If you still experience some slowdown again, please join our Discord to inform us: https://discord.gg/G95rNZs
