Cardano (ADA) developer addresses incident that caused blockchain failure
About half of Cardano’s (ADA) nodes briefly went offline this weekend due to an “anomaly,” but the network quickly recovered, according to Cardano developer Input Output Global (IOG).
In a Telegram announcement, IOG says the issue only briefly affected block production.
“This appears to have been triggered by a transient anomaly that causes one of two reactions in the node; some disconnect from a peer, others throw an exception and restart. Such transient problems (even if they should affect all nodes) were considered in the design of the Cardano node and consensus The systems behaved exactly as expected.
Block production was only briefly affected, as part of the network fell out of sync for about nodes restarted. Therefore, the impact was low – similar to the delays that occur during normal operations and often seen at epoch boundaries. Most nodes were automatically restored.”
“Last night during the anomaly on the Cardano network, the entire network did not go down. There was a brief period of degradation. Most affected nodes had recovered gracefully. No network reboot was required.”
Another Cardano stake pool operator, Tom Stokes, the tribute the network’s response as proof of “why decentralization matters.”
A more detailed explanation of the incident was discussed on GitHub.
Cardano’s native token, ADA, appears to be unaffected by the news and is trading around $0.378 at the time of writing, a fractional increase on the day.
