For the last couple of days users of social networks have been sending a lot of reports with complaints that the operation on the blockchain platform Monero and synchronization of nodes are malfunctioning.
Individual users compare it to the April hard fork, which was necessary to build up resistance to ASIC-miners. In addition to counteraction, such measures have caused some bugs in many social networks. The reason for the vulnerability to the attack of double expenditure was the reorganization of the blockchain network, up to 21 blocks.
However, the developer of Monero Riccardo Spagni assures that the reorganization could not disrupt the network in any way. Transactional operations are accompanied by bugs due to incorrect synchronization, he reports.
His reorg is dated yesterday, but it’s a section of blocks from 2.6 days ago, so DEFINITELY a reorg during catch up. Nobody else has seen anything besides a reorg of a single block or two, and https://t.co/9soPud8qp4 has been down for unrelated reasons. Much ado about nothing:)

Moreover, he stressed that the current situation caused a storm of unreasonable unrest and the temporary offline status of the site are connected with completely different reasons.
Spagni stated that he has no difficulties with working on Monero.
We remind you that recently the Japanese cryptocurrency exchange Coincheck announced the resumption of operations with Monero (XMR).
