Social media mocks Solana’s 10th downtime, supporters defend project
Solana came under renewed criticism after the blockchain network experienced its tenth downtime on February 25 and the following day. The network has been widely mocked on social media and forums, including r/cryptocurrency. In a forum thread, one user wrote: “Giving a second chance is one thing I can advocate for. An 11th chance, on the other hand, is more than delusional.” Besides, people made things jokes about the bumpy Solana reboot, and on the Discord server, validators discussed adding their phone numbers to receive text messages about future reboots.

The incident was not resolved until February 26, 2023 at 2:09 UTC. some critics called The issue and previous downtimes create a “design flaw” while others preferred shorting solana (SOL). Despite the significant downtime, Solana Labs co-founder Anatoly Yakovenko defended the project. burdensome that “Solana wants to be fast and super secure.” Brandon Tucker, the growth leader at Marinade Finance, a Solana-based liquid staking project, said an upcoming upgrade should significantly reduce those outages in the future.
“Chain restarts are never welcome, but it’s not a major setback,” Tucker said in a message sent to Bitcoin.com News. “In fact, despite the excitement, it’s a similar outage to the five others we’ve seen over the last 12 to 18 months. Ultimately, it’s good to see the validator community coming together of its own accord to initiate the updates and restart the chain in real-time. Solana is trying to do something that no other chain has done in terms of throughput and decentralization, and it’s not a straight road to get there — especially when it’s already being used by more people than about any other chain,” added Marinade’s CEO Finance added.
