Later, Laine, a blockchain that operates nodes on Solana tweeted that the reason for the issue appears to be a misconfigured node. According to the tweet, that led to an unrecoverable partition in the network. Laine said Solana Mainnet restart is in progress and the team needs 80% stake for that. At the time of writing, 49.5% is complete.
Data from Solana shows that the current outage is the fourth since January, when the network had several partial outages.
Currently, Solana’s native coin SOL trades at around $32.86. In the last 24 hours, the price dropped by around 4%.
