Solana Devs Call 'All Hands on Deck' as Unknown Bug Stops Block Production

Solana, a proof-of-stake (PoS) blockchain championed by FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried, is "stuck" due to an unknown issue.

Dec 4, 2020 at 6:42 p.m. UTC
Updated Sep 14, 2021 at 10:38 a.m. UTC

Update (Dec. 4, 19:45 UTC): Network validators have successfully restarted the Solana blockchain, according to the team.

Solana, a proof-of-stake (PoS) blockchain championed by FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried, is "stuck" due to an unknown issue, according to the project's GitHub.

  • "At approximately 1:46pm UTC on December 5th, 2020, the Solana Mainnet Beta cluster stopped producing blocks at slot 53,180,900, which prevented any new transactions from being confirmed," a Solana Medium post reads. "The Solana team is actively working with the validator community to restart the network."
  • Anatoly Yakovenko, co-founder of Solana, has called for "all hands on deck," referring to the network validators who process transactions.
  • The Solana blockchain explorer confirms no blocks are currently being produced.
  • Yakovenko did not return questions for comment by press time.

This is a developing story.
