EOS New York Reports Block Producers Crashed After RAM Usage Exceeds 1GB

One of EOS’s Block Producers Crashes After RAM Usage Exceeds 1GB

One of the 21 EOS Block Producers revealed that multiple block producers “crashed” after the blockchain network’s RAM usage “exceeded 1 GB.”

Claims that some BPs crashed came directly from EOS New York one of the leading BP with authority on the site. At the moment, it cannot be pinpointed to which BPs did crash but what is known is that due to their node configuration failure or that they only had 1 GB of RAM. Other reason might be an improper configuration of nodes, which should be set at 64 GB.

EOS New York further said that the block producers who ended up having their systems crashed were not following the elaborate guidelines provided in the agreement. Therefore, EOS New York, which is still making a detailed assessment of what had gone wrong, is almost certain that the BPs are at fault.

They assured that the chain is live and free of any issues. Even though the clarification brought relief to the crypto enthusiasts, still, the network remains one of the controversial projects. Many have alleged that the basic functioning of the network is against the basic theory of a blockchain network, which should be as much decentralized as possible.

Research has shown EOS may be more centralized than enthusiasts would want it to be, as the top 1.6 percent of holders own 90 percent of the cryptocurrency’s supply. Moreover, BPs have in the past been ordered to freeze 27 accounts on the blockchain, showing one organization had control over other users’ money. This forced Dan Larimer, the architect of EOS, to propose a new constitution, which would remove most of the powers away from the EOS Core Arbitration Forum (ECAF), the organization that ordered the accounts to be frozen.

Another controversy looming over EOS is their affiliation with Bitmain. Bitmain, a leading Bitcoin mining hardware manufacturer valued at $12 billion, recently qualified to become one of EOS network’s 21 BPs. Co-founded by Bitcoin Cash advocate Jihan Wu, Bitmain is well-known throughout the cryptosphere for its monopoly over the ASICs industry.
