Important: Anchors taking longer than usual to process due to a big increase in traffic on Ceramic mainnet

Hey everyone! We are seeing a significant increase in traffic on Ceramic mainnet which is currently overwhelming our CAS workers. As a result, anchors are taking much longer than usual to process. Streams with longer CACAO expiration timeouts should still be anchored, but the core Ceramic team is monitoring the situation very closely to prevent any potential data loss. We will keep you updated on this.

Here, I will also take a chance to remind everyone that we recommend users to update to the newest version of js-did (, which now has a week-long CACAO expiry by default, in order to defend against impacts from network issues going forward.

Status update - the issue has been resolved and CAS is operating at full speed. All anchors that were in the backlog are now successfully processed.
