A glitch between blocks 8,300,569 and 8,300,570 caused approximately 50% of Cardano nodes to shut down and restart Input Output Global (IOG) has announced.

According to the project developers, the incident has affected repeaters and block producers, however, edge nodes appear to be unaffected.

They have said that the failure was caused by a wandering problem, which made some nodes disconnect from peers or reboot.

IOG engineers have noted that they had foreseen the occurrence of such errors in the design.
