Top NFT News: Yuga Labs Sees $561 Million in NFT Sales!

In today’s crypto news global, the new integration will now enable 550 million Telegram users to send and receive Toncoin (TON) directly from their chat windows. The Ton Foundation says it has created a new way for users to utilize a pair of crypto assets.

Solana went dark for a whole of 7 hours on Saturday as the network experienced an “insane amount of data”.  For reasons not yet clear, validators were knocked out of the consensus while the blockchain was grinding still block production. In preparing for the restart validators mulled whether to implement code that would temporarily block Candy Machine transactions. Some debated in the Discord whether such a move constituted censorship. Regardless, it would only be effective if two-thirds of validators opted in. Few appeared to do so on Saturday night.

In today’s top NFT news, the startup behind the Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) had its highly anticipated Otherside metaverse mint on Saturday night, clogging the Ethereum mainnet and sending gas prices to shocking heights.

Solana Goes Dark for 7 Hours as Bots Swarm ‘Candy Machine’ NFT Minting Tool

Solana stakeholders rushed to right the network Saturday night after an “insane amount of data” flooded the proof-of-stake chain. For reasons not yet clear, this swarm pushed validators out of consensus. 

Bots had swarmed the popular NFT minting tool known as Candy Machine earlier Saturday with an unprecedented tsunami of inbound traffic: four million transaction requests and 100 gigabits of data every second – a record for the network, one source at the Solana Foundation said.
