In what will probably end up as a warning bell to trusting centralized services in the Chia space, Arbor Wallet seems to have stopped connecting to the Digital Farming Initiative (DFI) central nodes. What this means is that for users who have the app installed, it does not do much. And for users who would like to install it they cannot now, as it has been removed from the app store.
At the beginning this seemed to be a normal service issue, and the DFI team appeared to be on it. But it has quickly devolved into a major issue that is now multiple days old. This is a really big deal for a financial services product, and having unstable infrastructure can be a death knell for a young software project.
I tested the wallet functionality again after these reports and it seems that creating a new wallet works, and that new wallet can receive funds. But you cannot create a new transaction and submit that to the network. I get the same result as the use C.K does in the screenshot above.
Also, if you are trying to install the wallet for the time you won’t find it in the app stores. Both of the links in the original article about Arbor mobile wallets are now broken. This is a blow to the Chia community, as reliability of the tools are integral to adoption. If people start using a wallet for day to day business it can’t just stop working for a few days every once in awhile.
