Planned Maintenance for core.blockstack.org and node.blockstack.org


#1

Today, starting at 1430 EST, we’re going to start an upgrade deployment to the latest release of blockstack-core (v19.0.0) for the following services:

  • core.blockstack.org
  • node.blockstack.org

This will result in improved reliability, improved latency, and overall make the services much more stable long-term.
We don’t expect any downtime since this is a DNS cutover, but we’re planning on a maintenance window of about 1 hour from start to finish to handle any issues that might arise.
During this time, you may see some connection refused errors, or possibly a 404.

If you do notice any issues, please reply to this thread with any relevant details - we’d appreciate the feedback, and will look into any issues reported.


#2

Maintenance has been completed.
Please reply with any issues if you encounter anything strange
