A Two-Hour Stellar Node Outage Freezes Network Transactions Entirely

The network stopped confirming transactions from 4:15pm ET for almost two hours on Wednesday, May 15.

Once it went down for a couple of hours, the entire network could not reach any consensus.

Stellar, whose lumens token currently ranks as the eighth-largest by market capitalization, shut down for up to 110 minutes.

The incident affected other participants making them unable to discover consensus for blocks.
