Solana network faces performance degradation for the second time this week

Solana blockchain faces a second network performance degradation event this week. According to Solana, this happened due to an increase in high computational transaction volume.

As a result, the network capacity originally advertised as 50,000 transactions per second (TPS) was reduced to thousands of TPS. Solana cited this as the reason why users encountered transaction failures and added that its developers are already working hard to resolve these issues.

This latest network problem only appeared a few days later A similar incident On Tuesday, users encountered the same problem. Many people speculate that Tuesday’s incident was caused by a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack, but Solana co-founder Anatoly Yakovenko Responded On Twitter, it was said that this was just “the pain of commercializing a new runtime.”

In these recent events, Justin Bons, Chief Investment Officer of Cyber​​Capital Express He disapproved of Solana and posted a series of tweets, citing reasons why he did not support the project. Bons claims that Solana “has always exhibited a pattern of bad behavior” and “prioritizes attracting ignorant investors rather than good blockchain design.”

Bons also criticized the security of the network, mentioning that DDoS attacks are not the only problem. He said that DDoS can be combined with 51% attacks. In this way, he claimed that the attacker could “temporarily gain proportional control over the network by attacking other stakeholders.”

Yakovenko Be fired This is “nonsense”, stating that “DDoS private keys are impossible.”

Last year, Solana Similar effects caused by DDoS attacks And reduce network performance. Austin Federa, director of communications at Solana Labs, said that a large number of transactions during the initial DEX product “logged in to a Solana block that took up too much computing power” and there was an outage. Federa said: “The calculation of these types of transactions is not properly metered by the network, resulting in processing blocks that take much longer than the network expected.”
