Another failure of the Solana blockchain. The network does not process transactions. The reason is called an incorrectly configured node.
The list of Solana network failures continues to expand. Another failure occurred on Friday, September 30th. Its cause is called an incorrectly configured node. Validator Stakewiz.com on Twitter explains:
The validator ran a duplicate instance of the validator. This means that when it was their turn to create a block, they created one of each instance for the same slot, so some validators saw one block, others saw another, and then could not agree on which one was correct.
The SOL network was down for almost 3 hours. Now it is being rebooted. At the time of publication, it is 49% complete.
Anatoly Yakovenko and other members of the Solana Labs core team did not comment. In the past, they reacted harshly to crash reports. But in September, Yakovenko acknowledged that the blackouts were a problem for his network.
Solana is among the most popular blockchains for hosting applications and minting NFTs. The project occupies the 3rd position among the largest DeFi ecosystems, behind Ethereum and Cardano.
