I don't see any option to set custom block height when restoring wallet via Use existing wallet button.

Tried MyMonero on Android and iOS. But it's probably all the same..some kind of wrapped web app.

Answer from support is kinda strange, but they say there is no such option.

In that case I don't understand why we can restore a wallet.

Hi there,

We are a wallet hosting service, so we only offer the service to host any Monero wallet.

You are not able to select a custom block height on our app.


From the support:

Sometimes when restoring an older wallet, it would need to be manually imported and we set the account to scan the blockchain. This takes about 90 minutes but thereafter the wallet syncs.

If you’d like us to do that for you, please send us your wallet address.

  • As far as I know, MyMonero records the wallet creation height for wallets generated with the MyMonero application (desktop, web, or mobile). In case of a wallet generated by 'external' software, MyMonero simply uses zero as wallet creation height.

  • @dEBRUYNE I thought this too, but support says it sometimes (not) works - probably when the wallet is created via MyMonero.
