Unfortunately for users, Solana is again facing serious network issues as the Solana blockchain has struggled to maintain its normal state since May 17th. Prominent Solana commentator and ETH Newsweek author Evan Van Ness shared data from the past two weeks on Solana’s actual availability.
Currently, Solana suffers from a clock drift problem where longer block processing causes chain time delays. Users won’t notice the problem because it doesn’t directly affect network performance.
The main disadvantage of having clock drift on the network is the inaccurate reflection of time by decentralized applications built on Solana.
The thread from two weeks ago started with a screenshot of the Solana status page, showing that the network was facing performance degradation, so blocking times and processing were above normal, and users were having problems getting through transactions. Apparently, the downtime on May 17 lasted more than eight hours.
Later, pro-Ethereum users noticed that Solana’s status page did not contain data on previous downtimes, making the information unobjective. On May 22, Van Ness reported another Solana outage according to the status page. The problem is the same.
Although the current problems the network is facing are less severe and do not even affect the performance of the average user, it is still possible for the network conditions to deteriorate over time.
Continued downtime, lack of new projects launching to Solana, and other issues have led to selling pressure on the network token, which lost 70% of its value over the past 60 trading days. At press time, SOL is trading at $41, down 5% over the past 24 hours.
