Recently I created a Cake Wallet account and sent Monero to it. However, whenever I try to sync it, it continues to say "Starting Sync." I have tried connecting it to various different nodes but none of those have worked either.

Also, every time I add a different node, it shows up with a red dot beside it. This happens even if the node works outside of the Cake Wallet. Is this a known bug? Or is there something I can do to fix any of this?

  • same for me on iOS, it does not finish sync even if app left running in iPhone background. Did you found solution? I will try to restore wallet on Haven linux wallet...

If no nodes work at all, then it is probably an issue with your internet provider blocking connections to the nodes. You can try a VPN, using Tor, or a different network connection.



It must be firewall-related. Either yours or, more likely telecoms. They tend to block "mining operations"..
