I am using the latest version of GUI (v0.14.0.2). I am using a remote node so that I wont have to download the whole blockchain to my computer.

It TAKES FOREVER to sync?! I thought on of the upsides besides saving disc space was that you didn't have to sync the whole chain.

Is there any work around? I need to access my moneros and I don't wanna wait a week (or two) for it to sync.

I am using: uwillrunanodesoon.moneroworld.com as a node

I am traveling and my internet is not the fastest.

Thansk for helping out

    Did you restore a wallet from the 25 word mnemonic seed? And if so, did you make sure to set a proper restore height?

  • Going to mark this as duplicate, as the user probably did not set a proper restore height.
