After an interruption, the Solana (SOL) network will be operational again
The market's 7th largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization, SOL, was down 2.5% in one day and 6% in one week, trading at around USD 163. Between its September 14 high and early September 15 low, SOL had fallen 14%. It has since recovered nearly 9%. Solana's validators successfully restarted its mainnet beta after a one-day shutdown. Block explorers, dapps (decentralized applications), support systems and full functionality recovery should follow, the team said. On Solana's Twitter account, the team announced yesterday that the mainnet, still in beta mode, was experiencing "intermittent instability" and "network resource exhaustion was causing a denial of service." A little later, the team added that the network had experienced a massive increase in transaction load, which "flooded" the queue. This caused the network to fail to prioritize critical messages, resulting in a network "fork."
