Not working for me, it was working for a while after 2 hours from the start of the issue, but since last 6 hrs or so it hasn't been working.
I'm using my workaround for twitch atleast by connecting to it on a different ISP then swithcin back to Excitel, then as long as i don't refresh or click anything else it works atleast for that stream and basic chat.

Can u confirm if u can access any of these sites at the moment using DNSCrypt: twitch.tv, reddit.com, speedtest.net, github and bandcamp (u can access probably but it might be a slow load for these two).

If yes, then which version of it are u using? I tried the Simple DNSCrypt Client for windows and it didn't work for either of these sites.

Also on a side note, whenever this issue arises, it's always with the same set of websites/services, atleast for me.

Yeah. Instructions were not really clear. Accidentally found this step. Made perfect sense. Felt stupid ?
