Solana: Cause Of Mainnet Downfall On February 25 Still Unknown
- Solana released an official report of the network outage on February 25, but the cause remains unknown.

- Currently, the investigation is still going on actively to give the community an answer.
Today, Solana officially released a report on the mainnet outage on February 25. The report indicates that the outage’s root cause is still unknown, and the team is currently working on its investigative pole.
At approximately 05:46:16 UTC 2023-02-25, Solana Mainnet Beta suffered a significant performance degradation, eventually leading the validator community to opt for a restart of the network. The cause of this is still unknown and under active investigation.The announcement said.
According to the report, at 5:46:16 UTC on February 25, 2023, performance issues of the Solana mainnet finally forced validator nodes to automatically switch to vote-only mode, a “safe mode” designed to help the network recover in the event of data unavailability.
Although consensus voting transactions usually occur, the network cannot process user transactions. The initial restart attempt was aborted to allow time for more thorough data analysis and to ensure no user transactions were affected. However, after the investigation, the debugging engineers suggested restarting the network.
At around 01:28 on February 26, 2023 (UTC), the Solana Mainnet Beta was successfully restarted, and the network resumed processing user transactions.
After the reboot, no confirmed user transactions were aborted or affected.
The validator community unanimously agreed and decided to downgrade to the previous stable version, v1.13.6, while reducing the risk of reboots while v1.14 was recently deployed.
The cause of this is still unknown and is being actively investigated. The notification network will promptly update the latest information.
Despite being the network that crashes most often, Solana maintains a large user base because of its fast speeds and competitive transaction fees.
