The Solana blockchain faced its second network crash this week. Solana said this is due to the increase in data-intensive transactions.

As a result, network bandwidth, originally reported as 50,000 transactions per second (TPS), has been reduced to several thousand TPS. Solana cited this as the reason why users experienced failed transactions and added that the developers are already working on the issues.

This latest network issue came just days after a similar incident on Tuesday when users encountered the same issues. Many speculated that Tuesday’s incident was due to a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack, but Solana’s co-founder Anatoly Yakovenko responded on Twitter, saying it was just a “new runtime marketing pain”.

In the midst of these recent incidents, Justin Bones, Chief Investment Officer at Cyber ​​Capital, has expressed his disapproval of Solana and posted a series of tweets listing the reasons why he does not support the project. Pons claims that Solana “consistently shows a pattern of bad behavior” and “prioritizes attracting ignorant investors over good blockchain design.”

Bones has also criticized network security, noting that DDoS attacks are not the only problem. He said that DDoS can be combined with an attack of 51%. By doing so, he claims, attackers can “temporarily gain proportional control over the network by attacking other interested parties”.

Yakovenko called it “tiring nonsense,” saying, “It is impossible to carry out a DDoS attack on a private key.”

Last year, Solana was hit by a DDoS attack that had the same effect and reduced network performance. Austin Vader, communications manager at Solana Labs, said the error occurred after a series of transactions during the original DEX demo “fell into a Solana block that consumed an unusual amount of processing power.” “The accounts for these transactions were not properly tracked by the network and the blocks took much longer than expected to be processed by the network,” Vader said.
