I remember this happened with me too. At that moment, I realized there could be two reasons for it. Either, there was some bug in the app or that it was because of the Gaia Blockstack update. Your case suggest to me it was the latter.
There is interest from our product managers in finding outlevel of interest in maintaining this feature also.
If it’s not too late to say, good luck with your app!
Very interesting app! Thank you for sharing with us!
