Can I receive Sia Coins while the wallet is synchronizing



  • I am new at sia community and I am a bit confused about many issues mostly about the wallet, and there is not much help on the internet, today I wanted to buy some sia coins but when i opened my wallet it started synchronizing and it's almost for two hours (it was fully synchronized after i installed it), so I dont know can I use it while syncing or I have to wait for full sync and then make a transaction
    please someone help



  • Hi and welcome to Sia!

    Yes you can send coins to a wallet that is not fully synced. But you will only see them in the wallet when it is synced completely.

    Syncing can take a long time. You can do it faster if you download the blockchain from here: https://consensus.siahub.info/

    And you can find some more useful info about Sia on the Wiki: https://siawiki.tech/



  • @betaboot thanks for your answer, greetings
