Binance Halts Polygon Withdrawals And Deposits To Sync Nodes


Binance halts Polygon withdrawals and deposits in order to sync the nodes as the bug issue has been resolved and now the network is stable so let’s read further in today’s Binance news.

Binance, as the world’s biggest crypto exchange by trading volume, said it will halt deposits and withdrawals temporarily for Polygon’s Network. The announcement came after the Polygon outage with the exchange noting that it will reopen the deposit and withdrawals features once the network is stable.

The network is a layer-2 ETH Scaling solution whcih boasts millions of users and has an evolving ecosystem. The network underwent an upgrade on its three layers but due to a suspected bug, the layers didn’t reach the consensus post the upgrade which led to a downtime. The Polygon developers noted that the bug issue was fixed and the network is still stable but also clarified that Binance is upgrading the nodes and syncing the data which is why there was a halt.

The Polygon network has three layers and each one serves a distinct purpose. The ETH layer runs smart contracts while the Bor Layer helps in generating blocks and the fault lies in the third Heimdall layer. The bug caused the different Heimdall validators to be on different versions of the chain and hasn’t reached the 2/3 consensus. The outage for a few hours was expected and was notified by the Polygon team with the 11-hour extended outage which became a reason for concern for most projects and traders.

The Polygon network fixed another upgrade bug back in 2021 after the security partner discovered a bug that can put $24 billion worth of funds at risk. As per the latest Polygonscan data, the network started producing timely blocks and the team assured the network bug was taken care of.
