How do I sync my BRD app's Bitcoin wallet to the blockchain?
Although not usually necessary, sometimes you may need to 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.
Follow these steps to sync your wallet:
- On the main screen, tap Menu.
- Under Preferences choose Bitcoin Settings.
- Select Sync Blockchain.
- Tap on Start Sync.
- 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.
