PolygonScan stopped working, unfounded fears of a blockchain outage were raised

Key Points: Unfounded rumors that the Polygon Blockchain was temporarily offline were spread by network explorer Polygonscan.
The Polygon team stated that blockchain development has not stopped and that the problem was caused “by a few nodes” getting out of sync.
The network’s last outage was March 11, 2022, when maintenance had to be done on one of its three tiers.
Rumours that the Polygon blockchain was temporarily offline were unfounded. They were triggered by an outage at PolygonScan. According to PolygonScan data, a block wasn’t processed by the blockchain for over an hour and a quarter. This led to rumors that Polygon’s layer-2 scaling solution Polygon was experiencing an outage.
“Block production did not stop – However, there may have been a temporary decrease in network performance. These nodes have been resynchronized and the systems are back to normal.
The spokesperson said the team was also aware that Polygonscan is down, but alternative explorers can be used.”We are working with polygonscan to bring them back up,” said the spokesperson.Speculation of a possible outage first emerged on Feb. 22, with some pointing to an apparent halt in block production based on data from Polyscan — which showed the blockchain’s last block and transaction was processed at around 8:35 pm UTC on Feb. 22.The last network outage, which was caused by the need for maintenance on one of the network’s three tiers, happened on March 11, 2022.The crypto company Polygon Labs, which created the Polygon blockchain, stated on February 21 that it was eliminating 20% of its workforce, or about 100 roles.DISCLAIMER: The Information on this website is provided as general market commentary and does not constitute investment advice.
