How do I sync my BRD app's Bitcoin wallet to the blockchain?

BRD's Fastsync feature syncs your Bitcoin wallet almost instantly.  To turn Fastsync on, follow the steps below:

  1. On the main screen, tap Menu.
  2. Under Preferences choose Bitcoin Settings.
  3. Select Connection Mode and turn Fastsync on with the toggle.

Although not usually necessary, sometimes you may need to manually sync your BRD bitcoin wallet to the blockchain. Syncing to the blockchain ensures that you see the most up to date information regarding the transactions in your wallet.

After turning Fastsync off, follow these steps to sync your wallet:

  1. On the main screen, tap Menu.
  2. Under Preferences choose Bitcoin Settings.
  3. Select Sync Blockchain.
  4. Tap on Start Sync.
  5. In the pop-up window, tap Sync to begin

NOTE: You will not be able to make a transaction until the sync completes.

If the sync button is greyed out, that means a sync is already in progress.  To make sure that the sync completes, use a stable internet connection and keep the app open with screen on until the status bar disappears. Syncing can take 30 minutes or more to complete.

If you are an advanced user and would like to connect to a specific node for syncing, please visit this page for instructions.
