After the unverified information about the hours-long outage on the PolygonScan, the debate ended after some validators refuted rumours and made clear that the network hasn’t experienced any outages in processing blocks. The problem emerged due to some nodes going out of sync.
The rumours sparked after the Polygonscan, a blockchain explorer stopped showing updated blocks or transactions, which lasted for nearly 2 hours. In the brief window when it appeared as if Polygon itself had crashed, Crypto Twitter urgently spread the news of the alleged outage.
“Block production never stopped, however there could have been a degradation in network performance temporarily,” the spokesperson said. “Those nodes have resynced and systems are back to normal.”
However, some critics of the Polygon network have linked this issue with Polygon’s recent lay-off as it has taken down 100 employees, which seems out of sense.
