Solana blockchain experienced an outage on Wednesday, since block production on Solana Mainnet Beta was halted, as per the Solana Status Twitter page. 
As per the same account, validator operators successfully completed a cluster restart of Mainnet Beta, after more than four hours of outage, which was caused by the network's failure to reach consensus. 
The popular altcoin erased around half of its value in May and the cryptocurrency rout we saw - a far worse drop compared to some other cryptos. As a reference, FXCM's CryptoMajor Basket shed less than 30% in the same month.
This led SOL/USD to multi-month lows and the new month has not stated well, since aforementioned outage sparked a more than 11% plunge.
The cryprocurrency extended its losses today and this creates risk for fresh 2022 lows towards 32.40, although bears may need fresh impetus for tackling this level, while 18.20 seems distant for now.
Despite the losses, SOL/USD tries to catch a breath during the European hours and the Relative Strength Index (RSI) tries to move away from oversold levels. This may give the altcoin a chance to rebound towards the EMA100 (at mid-44.00s), but it does not really inspire confidence for much more at this stage.
Successful move above the EMA100 however, would pause short-term downward bias and could allow it to look towards and beyond 48.47.
