Cardano Network Recovers After Brief Node Outage

Cardano network experienced a brief outage on Sunday, which was automatically resolved within minutes, according to developers in a GitHub post.

iexclusivenews reports that several developers reported the error on GitHub, but all nodes were automatically restarted.

This online news outlet learnt that a Telegram broadcast message indicates that block producing nodes were temporarily impacted.

Nodes are network stakeholders who maintain and process transactions on any blockchain and are critical to the upkeep of any network.

“There was a brief period of degradation,” Rick McCracken, a developer building staking tools for Cardano, tweeted. “Most nodes impacted had gracefully recovered. No network restart was required.”

What You Should Know 

However, iexclusivenews Nigeria reports that blockchain nodes have previously gone offline on networks such as Solana.

With one such instance last May causing the entire Solana network to go offline for more than seven hours, according to CoinDesk.

In a separate incident in 2021, Solana validators were required to restart the network in order to troubleshoot a network outage.

The causes of node failure can range from a high volume of transactional activity to faulty code.

A quick fix, on the other hand, may indicate strong fundamentals for the affected network.

The Cardano community is ecstatic about the quick recovery, calling it proof that Cardano is a better blockchain than Solana.

Which took several hours to restore the network after multiple outages in 2022.

Pi Lanningham, chief technology officer of Cardano-based decentralized exchange SundaeSwap, tweeted.:

“The real takeaway for me is how impressively resilient the cardano network is. Something took down ~60% of nodes and the network recovered in a few minutes, and continued producing blocks throughout.”
