Solana’s super fast blockchain slowed on Thursday morning due to a mysterious overload events, which stimulated debates on centralization, communication and transparency in critical stakeholders of the ecosystem, Solana Labs sos tensions were in the lunch exhibition after the validators were angry with delays to the Nasdaq of Solana.
The issues were mostly resolved Thursday evening, but not before around 35 community members participated in a public video chat, including a reporter from CoinDesk and at least two engineers from Solana Labs.
Solana’s 1,000+ validators are the computing power behind a nearly $ 12 billion ecosystem of lending, trading, and other decentralized finance (DeFi) platforms.
Only a handful of them responded to Thursday’s call. They weren’t happy. The 50-minute conversation started with some tough questions – Could Solana benefit from a centralized observation system? – ended with a surrealist – Can the next Breakpoint be organized on yachts in the Mediterranean? – and I did not respond to what exactly would happen next.
