Did you forget your password and reset your account? If so it will create a new wallet for security you will need to restore the old one before proceeding.

Nope, the problem seems to have solved it itself after logout and login again, either doing that allowed to reload my old wallet with the Mnemonic Phrase or something else got reset in the process.

Haven't had that issue again since.

Thanks anyway :)

I'd find it much preferable if one could select the tipping amount for a certain article. Personally I'd easily tip a few dollars for a quality article, but a mere 10 cents upvote just seems like a waste of time. And I don't see any other ways to tip here, though supposedly there are QR codes below articles and tipping a profile should be somehow possible. But I don't see these options.

Your settings page is broken on all browsers - just see a loading spinner. I’m trying to unsubscribe to your emails. I can’t find your contact details anywhere - your help menu item takes me to this blog like page.

The payments are peer-to-peer and happen without any intermediary. You receive bitcoin from the upvote transactions as soon as the transaction is broadcasted.

What is meant by uncensorable? Should the content be written to the blockchain or is it done in a different way?

When you publish a post, it is not automatically recorded in the blockchain, but the platform shows you the option to record it in the Bitcoin Cash blockchain in the bottom of your post once it has been published.

I think this is the best possible way, especially because who decides that your post is recorded in the blockchain is yourself (other users do not have access to the option to record third-party content in the blockchain).

In my opinion, that is an advantage over purely onchain social networks like Steemit, where in my opinion, the content (natively) ceases to be purely your property, because you can not delete it and you are limited to the possibility of editing it. .

As soon as I posted my first story, the pop up message of success posting appeared on the right upper corner as usual but I think it should disappear in a few seconds so if the user want to write more content or go to their profile they could click on the options which were covered by this pop up which was actually not disappearing so to access those options I had to refresh the page, Please dev team check this.

And thank you for this plateform, let's hope for a great success to all of us.
