During the last 48 hours, social network users began reporting problems with transactions in e Monero and the synchronization of the nodes. One of the most popular sites in the community XMR.to at the same time for some time went offline.

All this is connected with the April hardfocus aimed at countering ASIC-miners, as a result of which, it is alleged, The network was reorganized to the depth of the 21 block and became vulnerable to a dual-use attack.

In connection with the problems encountered, users even began to assume that the struggle with ASICs might not be the best solution.

maybe we should have kept the ASICs

"Maybe we should leave ASIC-mining?" - Nic_Carter asks on Twitter.

He also added that users are experiencing problems using the software Lithium Luna and Monerod, "probably because of increased online activity and increased in the size of the blocks."

Ok so it looks like there probably weren’t any deep reorgs after all, it looks like lots of users are having trouble with lithium luna and monerod, possibly because of increased on-chain activity and bigger blocks.

However, according to the leading developer Monero Ricardo Spagny, this reorganization does not affect the network as a whole.

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:)

"This reorganization happened yesterday, but touched the blocks generated 2,6 days ago, so this is definitely related to the synchronization error. No one has recorded such cases, except for the reorganization of one or two blocks. The site XMR.to went offline for other reasons. Too much panic for no reason " - he declared.

The problem of double spending Spagna explained using remote nodes or "other strange things."

The user Reddit under the name LordOfTheAssclowns is still convinced that 21-th block was reorganized. In his opinion, this means that an attack of double spending can affect almost any user of Monero.

But. as stated in his latest tweet Ricardo Spagny, he does not personally experience any problems with transactions.

I’ve literally just sent 20 test transactions and had not a single problem.
