I've never had to on any other crypto. You can send coins to it but they won't actually show up in the wallet until the block that contains your transaction is synced, which is basically the whole thing.
I sent 10 NXS from Bittrex to Nexus wallet on my Mac as test
9.8 showed up in the wallet so I sent the remaining 990
Both transactions show as completed on Bittrex
The first transaction for 9.8 remains unconfirmed on the wallet
The second transaction never showed up - the tx number confirms it was sent.
1 - the wallet is asking for a paraphrase to unlock it - I created and saved a password, but not a phrase. the password does not work when entered as "paraphrase"
2 - assuming I can unlock the wallet, how do I sync it with the network so that it can confirm my transactions?
3 - I do not remember being prompted to create a paraphrase, only a password.
4 - I do not remember being told that I needed to synch the wallet before It could confirm transactions.
Need some assistance here please, I bought 1,000 so that I could learn how to set up a node. Love the vision here.
I am new to mining in general. I saw nexus allows cpu mining on a separate channel. I have a Ryzen 5 1600 and was looking to try it out. Is this too little of a cpu to mine with. it had 6 cores and 12 threads? i have mined nearly 20hrs with no luck.
