Another DDoS assault was blamed for the latest Solana network outage, which occurred early this morning. This is the third time the Solana blockchain has been hacked in the previous six months.
Colin Wu of Wu Blockchain, known for his dependability, broke the news via a tweet on the Wu Blockchain Twitter account.
As of this writing, Solana has not acknowledged nor denied that an attack occurred; however, according to Wu, the network had rectified the problem by 7 p.m. (UTC+8).
According to an article on Yahoo Style, Raj Gokal, the co-founder of Solana, revealed that an initial attack in December, also a supposed DDoS attack, was not so. Instead, he claimed that an IDO for the game SolChicks had produced significant congestion on the blockchain, slowing it down.
Solana’s most recent major outage occurred in September of last year. Following a flurry of transactions, the network went offline for 17 hours. As a result, the price dropped by roughly 30%, from $220 to $140.
However, it should be noted that Solana is still a new blockchain, and assaults are always a possibility. However, suppose developers want to keep the massive level of interest from wealthy investors. In that case, they’ll have to avoid these outages from occurring.
