Frequent Errors

Problem

The arweave blockchain is still processing your sign up. This shouldn't take too long, so just enjoy some good music until then!

This message is displayed in yellow in the header when the user's ArConnect transaction is pending.

Solution

The Arweave blockchain is still processing your sign up. This is out of our control and takes an arbitrary amount of time. It shouldn't take too long, so just enjoy some good music until then!

Problem

The blockchain transaction failed. This is most likely because you have no $AR on your ArConnect wallet (get some for free here). Once you have some $AR, retry the transaction

This message is displayed in red in the header when the user's ArConnect transaction is failed.

Solution

The blockchain transaction failed. This is most likely because you have no $AR on your ArConnect wallet. You can get some through the link provided for free. This is a faucet operated by the team over at Arweave and is also not in our control. If it doesn't work, you can find a list of exchanges where you can buy $AR here. You'll need less than 0.02 $AR. Once that is done, retry the transaction by clicking the button in the header.

Problem

The Arweave blockchain is still processing your sign up, you cannot do this action. Thank you for your patience

This notification is received when the user clicks Bid or Buy or his Wallet Icon and his ArConnect transaction is pending.

Solution

As mentioned in the header message, the Arweave blockchain is still processing your sign up, so you cannot do this action. You'll just need to wait until it is done processing.
