    Free TON main network has been restored

    According to Mitja Goroshevsky, yesterday, all data centers of Europe’s second-largest Internet service provider were disconnected from the Internet backbone. This led to a halt of the Free TON network, as more than 33% of masterchain validators were using OVH.
    Since the outage lasted quite a long time, the other nodes continued to communicate with each other. When OVH went on, the validator nodes could not successfully download and apply it, causing the nodes to reboot due to a memory shortage.
    TON Labs issued a patch that has reset and cut consensus protocol messages. As of today, the main Free TON network has been restored.
