Aptos Hit With 5-Hour Outage on Blockchain’s First Birthday
The speedy layer-1 network is back up and running but the event raised concerns about Aptos’ performance.
Aptos suffered an outage last night from around 7 pm ET and lasted more than five hours yesterday while hosting a mass drawing application to celebrate its one-year anniversary.
Data from Aptos block explorer Aptos showed that on-chain transactions stopped for about five hours on October 18.
The blockchain explorer AptoScan shows a difference of 5 hours and 6 minutes between two consecutive blocks. Normally, blocks on the network confirm in less than a second.
