As per the latest update, Solana Blockchain experienced a significant outage in the production of all blocks on its mainnet since 10:22 UT, Feb 6. Following the issue, the engineer, validators, and all other responsible entities are working closely to resolve the issue as early as possible.

The Solana team was the 1st to figure out the issue and stated that “all hands were on deck to investigate the root cause of the stop-in block advancement.” On the other hand, the Solana Blockchain explorer confirmed the severity of the situation by marking it as a significant outrage. 

“Investigations are underway, a consensus on restart has not yet been reached. If a restart is needed, this document is being updated with instructions as they become available.” This is per the reference available on the X profile of Solana Status. 

When writing, Solana (SOL) was trading at $94.33, with an intraday decline of 3.89%. However, a sudden spike of 6% was seen in the token’s trading volume. 

Per the company’s website, “Solana is a highly functional open-source project that banks on blockchain technology’s permissionless nature to provide decentralized finance (DeFi) solutions”.

Today’s outage of Solana has potentially affected confidence in meme coins on its network; more money might also flow to projects like Sponge V2 that run on the Ethereum ecosystem.

Market observers believe that the outage has affected the blockchain. If the issue is not resolved, further loss to the network and market is expected.
