Current status of the Rainbow Bridge

Feb 12, 2023 06:00 PM

All precautionary measures have now been concluded, and normal bridge operations have been resumed.

Feb 10, 2023 11:30 PM

Rainbow Bridge operations are currently paused as a precautionary measure.

Rainbow Bridge operations are currently paused as a precautionary measure. While paused, transfers between Ethereum and Aurora & NEAR, including finalizations, will be unavailable.

No funds are lost. We are working on getting the bridge back up quickly. Thank you for your patience.

The Rainbow Bridge operation has been restored.

The Rainbow Bridge is back! Due to Ethereum's migration to PoS consensus and its increased time to block finality, the bridging time for transactions from Ethereum is also increased to ~20 mins. Also, for the ones running watchdogs - please update the address of `NearOnEthClient` to "0x3FEFc5A4B1c02f21cBc8D3613643ba0635b9a873" to keep on contributing to the security of the bridge.

Ethereum Rainbow Bridge transfers are paused until The Merge is completed.

The Rainbow Bridge and transfer finalization to Ethereum were paused on September 11 at 12:00 UTC. We will resume operations after The Merge, as soon as we feel certain about the safety and success of the upgrade. Users will be able to finalize any pending transfers after the Rainbow Bridge is unpaused. Read this blog article to learn what you need to know about this important event.

NEAR RPC normal service has been restored & all bridge functions back to normal.

The previously reported NEAR RPC intermittent issues have been resolved. Bridge transfers to NEAR and Aurora should no longer be delayed and all pending transfers should be finalized.

NEAR RPC intermittent issues affecting transfers and wallet connections

The NEAR RPC is currently experiencing intermittent issues that are causing delays on transfers to NEAR and Aurora, and may affect connection to NEAR wallets. We do not have an ETA on when the NEAR team will have these issues resolved, but they are actively working on it.

Transferred funds are safe, and transfers will be completed once these RPC issues are resolved. It is also safe to initiate transfers currently; just be aware their finalization may be delayed.

The Rainbow Bridge update is now complete, and operations are fully restored.

The Rainbow Bridge update correponding to the NEARCore update is now complete, and bridge operations are fully restored.

Transfers to Ethereum delayed due to NEARCore upgrade.

On Saturday, December 18 at 10:00 UTC, the NEAR Protocol upgraded NEARCore to version 1.23.0. This upgrade requires a corresponding upgrade of the Rainbow Bridge, and until that upgrade is completed, transfers to Ethereum will be delayed. It is currently estimated that the update will require approximately 24 hours.

Note that it is safe to continue conducting transfers during this period; one just needs to be aware that finalization of such transfers can only happen after the update is completed.

NEAR epoch 1262 issue has been resolved. All transactions have been finalized.

The small number of transactions affected by the NEAR epoch 1262 issue have been finalized on behalf of Aurora team. No user action is required. If you believe your transaction has not been finalized, please reach to our support team using the icon in the bottom right corner of the screen, and include the transaction ID of your source transaction.

Dec 10, 2021 07:30 AM

Finalization of certain transfers to Ethereum are delayed.

It is currently not possible to finalize transfers to Ethereum made during Near Protocol epoch 1262—Tuesday, December 7, from approximately 10:00h to 22:00h UTC. We are currently investigating but have not yet identified the root cause, and therefore do not yet have an ETA for resolution.

Full access to the Aurora RPC endpoints have been restored.

The DDoS attack has been mitigated, and full access to the Aurora RPC endpoints restored.

Oct 31, 2021 04:30 PM

Help with connection issues in MetaMask.

Part of our DDoS mitigation involved blocking access from some regions of Asia and Russia. We expect these measures to be temporary, but if you are having issues connecting to the Aurora network with MetaMask, and are in these regions, you may solve the problem by using a VPN.

Oct 30, 2021 08:30 AM

Access operations have been restored to normal. Data catch-up still ongoing.

The DDoS attack has been mostly mitigated, and so access operations should again appear normal. The RPC endpoint is catching up on past data, so for some time still balances on Aurora will appear incorrect.

Oct 28, 2021 05:00 PM

Caution — The Aurora RPC node is currently under heavy load.

We have added more capacity to our RPC endpoint, and have deployed mitigations against the DDoS. The situation is much better than yesterday at this time, although some users are still reporting delays on network connections and balance displays. In the meantime, we continue working on the situation, and as a reminder funds are safe.

Oct 27, 2021 03:00 PM

Caution — The Aurora RPC node is currently under heavy load.

The Aurora RPC endpoint is currently under heavy load and experiencing a DDoS attack. We are working to resolve the situation, but in the meantime, this will affect the usage of the bridge to and from the Aurora network. Funds are safe, however, the situation will affect balance display and availability of funds temporarily.

Please consider the purpose and urgency of your transfers when considering the use of the bridge until this is resolved.
