While it remains unclear who or what exactly caused the service denial, Anatoly Yakovenko, CEO of Solana Labs, said the fixes have already been tagged in 1.6.23 release. However, it would take "a few days" before the release, he added. Solana's native token (SOl) amid the news fell by over 7% down to $160. The token's market capitalization stands at $47.5 billion.
