Arbitrum network suffers minor outage due to hardware failure

The Ethereum layer 2 network Arbitrum has suffered its second outage in less than five months following a hardware failure.

Arbitrum is back online at the time of writing but the team did report some downtime during the late hours of Jan. 9. The timing of the tweets suggests that the network was down for around seven hours.

At the time, the Offchain Labs platform reported that it was experiencing some issues with the sequencer which prevented transactions from being processed for the period.
