40% Of Hedera Hashgraph Council Nodes Drops Offline, HBAR Price Down 54% In Last 30 Days


  • 4 of Hedera Hashgraph’s nodes have gone offline without any warning, indicating the network is perhaps more centralized than it was believed to be.

The closing of 4 nodes out of a total of 10 allows Sybill attacks to happen in an open network. Hedera Hashgraph is known to run public nodes, yet the Council Nodes are the ones that decide resources and software updates for the network. Hedera Hashgraph’s nodes should be run by the project’s largest platforms, like Boeing, IBM, Deutsche Telekom, and others.

Hedera Hashgraph Was the Big Sensation of 2019

Since it was a sensation in 2019, Hedera Hashgraph got immediately listed on Binance. Its CEO and co-founder, Mance Harmon, presented the project’s traditional business structure and organized a token sale that gained a lot of hype and many important buyers in the pre-sale periods.

The HBAR Token Failed

Soon after the exchange’s launch, the HBAR token began to unravel itself. The news on the node shutdown has caused the asset to go down by 9% once more, reaching the $0.011 value, after the initial $0.40 trading levels. HBAR has been made available for early buyers, last time on December 31, making retail token holders become reluctant bagholders.

Hedera Hashgraph had an attempt to manage the price slide of the token by offering ICO buyers who haven’t invested too much in HBAR future rewards if they held onto their pre-launch tokens and gave up on getting active HBAR. This is how the HBAR price is expected to change in 2020, according to distribution:

Every distribution almost coincides with immediate selling and causes the price to go down without any hope of stopping. Binance is the main liquidity source as it liquidates HBAR:
