- “EOS network has degraded performance. Sends and receives might be delayed.”
The platform posted to statement on the 20th of February stating:
“EOS network has degraded performance. Sends and receives might be delayed.”

There have been several issues on the network in the past though. This isn’t the first time that EOS has experienced such problems. In fact, at the end of last month, it missed an average of 20,000 blocks on a daily basis.
It was reported in October last year, research states that the EOS could experience congestion hacks which could end up freezing the network completely.
It will be interesting to see how this situation plays out. For more news on this and other crypto updates, keep it with CryptoDaily!
