The development comes less than two weeks after Solana experienced a similar situation on September 2, 2021.
Per a Twitter update from the Solana Foundation, the Solana mainnet-beta suffered an intermittent performance degradation that temporarily reduced its network throughput. Interestingly, the network’s technical team did not allow the issue to linger, as a fix was provided an hour after the problem was encountered.
While many would expect Solana to maintain a stable platform considering its popularity in recent times, it is worth noting that the project is still identifying all problems that could affect its future performance when it finally rolls out its official main-net version.
For now, the Solana main-net is still in beta mode and will remain so until the developers have added the necessary upgrades to make the main-net function efficient when it finally chooses to release the official main-net version.
