On May 9, an update was given regarding the reasons responsible for the network’s outages stating:
“After a closer investigation, the source of the problem was determined to be a combination of recent big miners that joined the network with outdated Bytecoin versions built more than a year ago and a minor bug in how the block sizes are calculated for consensus. As the hash power of miners who were using the outdated software reached ~25%, the probability of generating a block not accepted by the new Bytecoin increased.”
