Ethereum scaling solution at layer 2 Yesterday and today, Polygon did not generate a new block for more than 11 hours. However, the company has assured users that all payments and data stored on the blockchain are secure.
Following a statement on the project’s forum at 4:20 p.m.4:20 p.m. UTC that the team needed to do maintenance on one of the network’s three levels, the network was scheduled to go down starting about 5:50 p.m.5:50 p.m. UTC yesterday.
The outage occurred because it was suspected that a recent update had harmed the network’s capacity to establish an agreement. The outage occurred at 5:54 p.m.5:54 p.m. UTC, as predicted.
However, at around 1:30 a.m.1:30 a.m. UTC today, the Polygon team informed users that the situation had not been resolved and that they had no choice but to launch a hotfix that would temporarily help the network construct new blocks. At roughly four a.m.4 a.m. UTC this morning, the team successfully delivered the patch, restoring operations on Polygon’s network.
Polygon users were aware that the outage was scheduled, but many were irritated when the delay lasted 6 hours, and they took to social media to vent their dissatisfaction with the prolonged shutdown. Other people expressed how the outage had harmed their cryptocurrency businesses.
This isn’t the first time a flaw in the Polygon network has surfaced. The team’s most recent flaw placed $24 billion worth of cash in danger. However, by the end of 2021, this defect had been fixed reasonably swiftly and without incident.
