Beam's blockchain stopped temporarily due to an incorrect UTXO commitment

Beam, the privacy coin implementing the MimbleWimble protocol, announced via its Twitter that Beam's blockchain stopped at block 25,709 and that the team is investigating and will release an update. Two hours later, Beam tweeted that the issue was identified and a fix was found. It also reassured the Beam holders that funds were safe. A little more than an hour later, the Beam team committed the fix on Github.
