Polygonscan was “stagnant” for several hours on the morning of February 23, causing many people to mistakenly believe that Polygon was the problem.

Polygonscan crashed, interrupted for many hours

In the early morning of February 23 (Vietnam time), rumors that the Polygon network was down for many hours made the crypto community stand still.

Specifically, Polygonscan data shows that this blockchain has not generated new blocks or processed any transactions since about 03:30 this morning.

However, about 2 hours later, Polygon co-founder Sandeep Nailwal corrected that blockchain activity tracker Polygonscan had problems, not the entire network.

Founder Sandeep also recommends that users switch to OKLink temporarily to check transactions.

Exchange with Decrypt, Polygon representative said:

“New block generation never stops, however it is possible that the network has experienced a temporary drop in performance. The nodes were then synchronized and the system was back to normal.”

Although it did not cause a loss of money, the incident still caused panic in the crypto community on Twitter.

Someone took this opportunity to criticize Polygon and advise the above developers to consider moving to the rival Solana network.

Others have tried to link the incident to the decision to cut 20% of staff from Polygon that Kyptos reported on February 21.

As of the time of writing, the problem appears to have been completely fixed and Polygonscan is back up and running.

But in the past there was a time Polygon “silent” for 9 hours straight. Meanwhile, the community has become so used to the “stuck” problem on Solana network.
