  • what(): Resource temporarily unavailable

  • proxy crashed with exit code 139. Respawning..
  • munmap_chunk(): invalid pointer
  • proxy crashed with exit code 134. Respawning..

What does this all mean?

All of these errors indicate that the server is trying to use a previously existed resource, which is not available anymore.

These coins don't participate in the delegation. It's a kind of tax for register the node.
But you'll be able to get it back if you decide to stop the node.
