Even though I’m only uploading for as far as I can tell, my token balance seems to be decreasing. Not anywhere near as bad as in some of the versions from last year, but still… I would expect it to be increasing since I’m relaying and uploading.

Furthermore, the graph of the token balance over time is empty. I can zoom in and shift it, but it doesn’t seem to display any token data. The little “A” button (to focus?) in the bottom left corner of the graph could use a tooltip or a more telling icon.

Thanks for reporting. With Tribler 7.8, we did a full token balance wipe since there was a major bug that skewed the balances of bandwidth tokens.

Tribler does quite some things in the background to serve you content, for example, downloading channels, doing (anonymized) DHT lookups to estimate the swarm health etc. This also requires bandwidth and the services of other users and decreases your balance, although likely at a slow rate. In a future version of Tribler, we plan to provide some insights in the reason why you balance increases or decreases :+1:

I’m experiencing a new error. Yesterday, Tribler took ages to quit, and eventually, I used the orange button to force it to quit.

Today, I’m unable to start it again. When I try to start it, I receive the following message:

{'exc_info':(<class 'psutil.NoSuchProcess'> psutil.NoSuchProcess no process found with pid 11312, traceback object at 0x000002408903DA40>), 'attachments' []}.

Edit: It seems like it’s working again after a reboot.
