Unfounded Fears Of A Blockchain Outage Were Raised After PolygonScan Ceased To Function


An outage at network explorer Polygonscan led to unfounded allegations that the Polygon blockchain was briefly down.

Data from PolygonScan showed that the blockchain had not processed a block in almost an hour and a half, which led to rumors that layer-2 scaling solution Polygon may have been down.

The Polygon team has now claimed that blockchain development has not stopped and that "a few nodes" going out of sync was the root of the issue.

The crew is aware that Polygonscan is unavailable, but alternate explorers can be utilized, the representative added.The spokesman stated:

"We are working with Polygonscan to put them back up."

On February 22, there was some talk of a potential outage. Some pointed to data from Polyscan, which revealed that at roughly 8:35 p.m. UTC on February 22, the blockchain's last block and transaction had been executed.

‌On March 11, 2022, one of the network's three tiers required repair, resulting in the most recent outage.

The Polygon blockchain was developed by the cryptocurrency business Polygon Labs, which announced on February 21 that it was reducing 20% of its employees, or around 100 roles.
