“Each assaults had been DoS assaults meant to halt block manufacturing, so that’s related. The large distinction is that in Ethereum blocks by no means stopped producing in the course of the assaults due to our multi-client design choices. Solana is actually having to do a community restart,” Hudson confused. The software program developer added:

I don’t just like the rhetoric and comparisons to Ethereum [Anatoly Yakovenko] and others have made all through the day on Twitter as a result of it feels disingenuous and feels prefer it minimizes the problems Solana confronted. I additionally don’t like that some individuals within the Ethereum neighborhood are bashing Solana for having to manually restart. Ethereum might simply as simply be in an identical place if the merge has a bug. All that being stated, I maintain no sick will in the direction of Solana and want them the perfect.
