Dash Blockchain Faces Downtime for Hours after Hard Fork Fail, Binance Suspends Mining Rewards

The Dash blockchain experienced a downtime for several hours after the activation of its Dash Core v19 hard fork failed on May 22. The blockchain was unable to process new transactions or produce new blocks during this time. Dash's chief technical officer, Samuel Westrich, announced the issue on Twitter and stated that they were investigating the problem. Crypto exchange Binance also suspended the distribution of mining rewards for DASH until the blockchain resumed block production. The hard fork was intended to improve the security of the Dash network and introduce Dash Masternodes, which have high collateral requirements to operate.
