Hey so I haven't synced my bitcoin wallet in forever lol and now it's taking absolutely forever to sync back up. I'm 565 days back now and I downloaded the blockchain.dat file and put that to work and I still only got maybe like 80 days in like 8 hours today. I have a slow internet connection so I thought this was gonna help it. Is this the kind of speed I should expect or is there something else I can do? Thanks
I'm new to the whole bitcoin thing and purchased 20 the other day but it's taken my bitcoin wallet almost a week to update. It's now up to 99.3% done with the last block generated 10 days ago Is this usual for it to take this long or is something wrong on my end? Sorry for the noob question. I'm just starting to worry since I have like 500 dollars in limbo while this happens.
"Error - Network Fee conditions are being downloaded. Please try again" comes when trying to send BTC, nothing seems to work in trying to solve the issue
So, this problem appeared on my Breadwallet after I updated the app and bought BTC to it through ATM. I have tried pretty much every advice I've found trying to solve this problem without being able to solve this. Here is everything I've tried so far: - Disconnected/connected to/from mobile network multiple times - Shut-off iPhone and turned on it again multiple times - Tried connecting with 2 different WLAN-connections multiple times - doesn't work, and doesn't work on my mobile connection - Synced Bitcoin-wallet multiple times through Settings - Bitcoin - Sync with blockchain - Checked BreadWallet is up to date - Waiting it out - doesn't still work after 2 weeks I am getting really frustrated at this point. Is there some way to get my wallet working as it should? As the issue is with sending BTC I cannot even move them to another wallet or use ATM to sell them.
if i use bitcoin core to create a wallet without ever syncing the blockchain, can i latter use an spv light wallet to spend the coins? in other words, can i use the keys created in bitcoin core in a wallet like electrum?
TECH HELP: Wallet conflict! Need help retrieving missing BTC from Bitcoin Core Qt wallet after trying to also install and sync BitcoinABC Qt wallet.
Hey guys, It seems I'm one of those newbies who's dove into the pool before learning how to swim. A couple of weeks ago I installed the Bitcoin Core wallet and deposited a small amount of BTC to get it off the exchange. After buying some BCH I decided to download ABC Qt wallet to store my BCH. After installing and running ABC, I noticed the wallet had a transaction in its history showing the exact denomination I had deposited into my BTC wallet, but in BCH!!! (so not the same value) And it was already encrypted. After waiting a night for it to sync with the network ('processing blocks on disk', and then 'reindexing blocks on disk') the syncing stalled at 81ish percent and I decided to give up on it. I closed the program and opened up the preexisting Bitcoin Core wallet to find that the value had dropped to 0, and it also could not connect to the network and has its network progress stuck at 81ish percent. There seems to be a conflict between the two that's causing the problem because the I was running a full node the the Bitcoin Core wallet which was 100 percent synced last night! During installation, I noticed the ABC wallet had a transaction in its history showing the exact denomination I had deposited into my BTC wallet, but in BCH!!! (so not the same value) It seems that the computer recognises the two programs as the same. And now the funds are stuck in limbo. How the hell can I resolve the issue to at least retrieve my funds? I haven't deleted the ABC app yet in case that makes my funds irretrievable. (fyi: using an MacBook Pro)
Since all wallets other than the Bitcoin Core protocol just sync to the ledger instead of downloading it, if everyone uninstalls the original Bitcoin Core protocol will everything go to shit?
If every single person deleted the Bitcoin Core protocol and all related data off their computer, would bitcoin cease to exist? Sorry if this is a stupid quesiton, I'm just a noob and I'm still learning

Bitcoin Core Wallet - been syncing for a week now, WTF?
Running full node BTCore v0.13.0 and Qt 5.6.1 on a 3.47G Xeon workstation with 12G memory on Win7x64Pro workstation with 20M connection. Been syncing for 1 week now...and still has 29 weeks left to go, at the blazing clip of 1 week sync per DAY. At this rate It will be Christmas before its done (literally like 30 days). I'm only trying to get a full sync so I can spring my BTC the F&%k out of BTCoreWallet and into Electrum. I've had enough. I've read that past 0.10, bootstrapping is useless. My CPU is only crunching at <20% on the BTCore thread. I have no idea why it is slow freaking slow. I've restarted Wallet once already with zero improvement. What gives? Is there any way to make this go any faster? Back in the day this used to take maybe ~1 day to sync, but is entirely useless now. Any advice on how to get out from under this mess that is BTCoreWallet? F-this.
Can someone explain to me why I need 10Gb of data to sync a BitCoin wallet? Is this problem exacerbated by so many micro-transactions?
I have a basic understanding of the system... but I wonder how this is sustainable? If my understanding is correct, every transaction adds to this data needed to sync the "block chain", and with so many "micro-transactions" on those "free bitcoin" websites... pointless mini-transactions just add to the filesize while providing no real value to the community. What is there to prevent this problem? And what does this mean for the future?
