Polygon Network Went Offline for 11 Hours.
Polygon Network, a leading smart contracts platform, went offline following a scheduled upgrade. For over 11 hours, the platform did not confirm transactions.
Polygon Network (MATIC) engineers revealed issues in Heimdall, one of its Proof-of-Stake (PoS) design layers. To allow engineers to repair them safely, the decision was made to halt the transactions: the team informed users of the planned disruption.
The outage, however, lasted longer than intended. As users began arguing on social media, the team delivered a patch to allow operations to restart.
In addition, team members indicated that they are working for a long-term solution to permanently resolve the problems. During the downtime, the Polygonscan and Polygon Bridge instruments were turned off.
The platform’s activities resumed in the early morning hours of March 11, 2022. (UTC). Polygonscan has been updated and displays transactions as of press time, while Polygon Bridge assures cross-network compatibility.
Previously, Solana (SOL), the most popular “Ethereum killer,” had a string of problems between Q4 of 2021 and Q1 of 2022. In less than three months, the protocol had six outages.
According to its developers, neither cash or data of the platform users were at danger throughout the whole downtime.
The platform was jammed in January 2022 because to a large increase in transactional traffic caused by the enthusiasm around the Sunflowers Farmer GameFi protocol.
