Investors Faith Shaken
A distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) assault was blamed for the most recent outage on January 7, which resulted in Solana Lab’s engineers updating the system and thereby rejecting these sorts of requests. Investors’ faith in the blockchain has been shaken due to these instances, and many have reduced their investment.
Moreover, there was no respite.
