Meanwhile, Austin Federa, chief communications officer at Solana, denied this, saying that’s not how blockchains work. At the time of writing, Solana (SOL) price is at $14.46, up 0.86% in the last 24 hours, according to price tracking platform CoinMarketCap.
The Solana blockchain encountered network outages on several occasions in the past. Very recently, on 1 October 2022, SOL suffered a major network outage. The stop was due to misconfiguration in a single node. Before that, the Solana network had a power outage due to a problem with the support structure. These network outages involve the suspension of transactions for several hours.
