I have opened my BRD wallet after few months and it is taking a lot of time in synchronization. Anyone can tell me how much time it will take to sync ?
I also have Electrum wallet but it always syncs instantly. Why there is always sync issues in BRD wallet ?

I have opened my BRD wallet after few months and it is taking a lot of time in synchronization.
Have you tried its "FastSync" feature? I'm not one of its users, but it says it'll sync within few seconds:


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

Anyone can tell me how much time it will take to sync ?
Based on the above link, the SPV sync should take more than 30 minutes.

Update:
I do not know why it should be like that because all those wallets are normally SPV wallets and sychronizing should not take more than 5 to 10 seconds if the network is working perfectly.
I was surprised as well [I checked everywhere, but couldn't find a single clue why it takes that much].

That solved the probelm. Smiley

Although when i checked fastsync was enabled already but i disabled it and then re-enabled it and it sync the wallet.
I'm glad it worked somehow Smiley

I am not also a user of BRD wallet, but that link is useful enough, if the internet connection is working perfectly, then the 'FastSync' should be turned on which can make it to sychronized in just few seconds.

I also have Electrum wallet but it always syncs instantly. Why there is always sync issues in BRD wallet ?
I still do not under why it is like that according to the link posted by SFR10, SPV sychronizing option can take up to 30 minutes which will most likely be the reason. I do not know why it should be like that because all those wallets are normally SPV wallets and sychronizing should not take more than 5 to 10 seconds if the network is working perfectly.

From memory... BRD is (was?) leveraging something like BitcoinJ and connects directly to Bitcoin node's, like Bitcoin Wallet for Android... rather than connecting to wallet specific servers like Electrum does.

As such, the syncing is generally a little slower, as it is using Bloom Filters from "random" full nodes, as opposed to dedicated servers etc, but obviously still faster than doing a full blockchain download and verification.

Enter "FastSync"... which is basically BRD's version of a "custom server" like ElectrumX/electrs/EPS etc, but from what I can tell is hosted by BRD themselves... you can read more here: https://brd.com/blog/fastsync-explained
