SOL price slid as Solana’s mainnet-beta faced major outage.

The Solana blockchain network is back up after suffering five hours of downtime early Tuesday morning.

“Block production on Solana mainnet beta resumed at 14:57 UTC, following a successful upgrade to v1.17.20 and a restart of the cluster by validator operators,” the Solana team said on X. “The outage began at approximately 09:53 UTC, lasting 5 hours.”


The outage ranks as the fifth longest in the network’s history and marks the eleventh in the past two years.
