The core devs and the validator community have identified what we believe is the root cause of chain halt (and the prior one) and a new validator release is being prepared.
In the meantime, a hotfix has been applied to some validator nodes in the Consensus Group and block production has resumed.

The core team is investigating the chain halt that occurred at block height 1,575,955.
The network appears to have hit the same issue that was cleared earlier and most likely the root cause of the initial outage. The core team and Validator operators in the community are working together to resolve this issue.
Hotspots will not be participating in Proof of Coverage until block production resumes.
All funds are safe, but pending transactions will be delayed until we can resolve this halt. Pending Transactions include adding a Hotspot, changing a Hotspot Location, transferring a Hotspot, payments, and token burns. At this time, data transfer is not affected by the chain halt.
