ronin into the terminal at any time to enter the menu. Most of the troubleshooting is done manually or from within the RoninCLI command line menu.
Checking the logs for the Dojo software stack is the first step in troubleshooting your RoninDojo bitcoin node! You can view logs by using the RoninCLI menus. Here is an example.
Note: Within the RoninCLI Menu, some error logs will have no output if there are not any errors.
You can also pull them by using specific commands in the terminal.
If your Dojo software stack install goes wrong you may see a false positive "Dojo is already started!" when trying to start. If so please contact our support.

If someone has access to pubkeys they can view your entire wallet balance & transactions!
