So my ether wallet has been attempting to sync for the last 28 days.

Wallet version 0.8.10
Ether node geth 1.6.5 (Go)
MacOS Sierra 10.12.5

Will the wallet ever sync?
It seems to be downloading infinite chain structure.

Could really use some reassurance as I have coin transferred to this wallet and I'm worried it might never arrive.

You can try deleting your chaindata folder, you can also use myetherwallet.com to access your ETH.

Your ETH balance is still viewable on ethereum blockchain browsers like etherscan: etherscan.io/address/0x...

Your local node with ethereum-wallet/mist is only accessing the public blockchain and is not necessary for the rest of the network to function.

dear sathishvj -- I have the same issue with my wallet and the node never synching, and on top of that no ether I have sent to my wallet address shows up. Can you elaborate on why you say the local nodes "is not necessary for the rest of the network to function." I'm guessing I have received no ether because the download never completes, but I could be wrong of course. Can you help?

So I used the myetherwallet.com route to send my ether to a different wallet.

Worked just fine, and now I don't have the stress of wondering if I will ever see my ether due to an endless node sync.

Thank you everyone.

Type etherum wallet into the apple app store or google play store.

You're looking for a wallet from Freewallet.org.

@matthewleising as a quite crude analogy, think of how email works. Somebody sends you an email while your computer was shut down. Is it still received? Yes, on your email account. But not your computer. You later start your computer, connect to the internet, and now the email sync happens. The email will then show up on your local client. In a somewhat similar way, somebody sending Eth to your account will be processed by the Ethereum network and it will be available against your account. However, your local node might still not have the latest until it is synced with the network.

Hey guys, i have kind of the similar problem.. I bought some ethereum and transferred it to my mist wallet, not realising it was still synchronising...
Now the Mist Wallet has been synchronizing for 10 days and is roughly at 66%. it moves as slow as one block a second and it already uses about 20Gb of space on my Macbook. I've read many advises on Geth and myethereumwallet.com, but i am quite new to ethereum and these terms and I have absolutely no idea how to make it sync any faster or how to acces my ethereum via myethereumwallet.com.

I am convinced I am doing multiple things wrong and I know it is mostly due to my complete ignorance about Ethereum and the wallets, but I really would like to acces my ethereum and I hope someone can help me accessing it faster.

Thanks!

@Luukw12 It's myetherwallet.com Don't go to any other site. They could be phishing sites.

It would be best if you followed the tutorials for MEW (myetherwallet.com). You can just search for them.

Yes, syncing the entire blockchain takes tens of GBs of space.

For the sync, make sure you are on a fast network, if possible put an Ethernet cable directly to the WiFi box, see if it finds peers, check the log file that there are no errors, if you are behind a proxy maybe you can try on a network without that, close other torrent/wallet/AV apps (not sure if it has an impact but you can try).

maybe that I'm wrong, but I see a design flaw here, running a full node without any prune option to keep the downloaded data within a reasonable size, specially when the network seems to be under pressure like these days, the sync task never finish, I suppose that network changes faster than the most home computers can handle; just now I see that the chain structure has near 180'000 entries, and my pc follows at 160'000, one hour ago was 140'000 over 165'000, a funny race, beside the fact that the wallet is eating all my resources (memory, hard disk) :/

FYI, wallet 0.8.10, linux version

edit: I discovered just now that the local node is already started using geth --fast, so it's already pruned; seems that is not a mist/wallet problem, but related to underline geth node, should the issue to be routed to "geth" developers?

update: I can confirm that the issue is related to geth one, see ethereum/go-ethereum#14575

I found several entries like this in node.log:
WARN [06-11|16:16:01] Synchronisation failed, retrying err="state data download canceled (requested)"

simply said, the network is filled by new transactions and the geth client is not able to follow

As far as I understand, by default Mist/Ethereum-Wallet starts geth and then connects to that. So sync issues are definitely at the geth level. I used to just run geth and see the log on screen. I would see that issue once in a rare while, but stopping and starting geth usually worked for me.

I've been syncing for about 20 days now. In the beginning the chains structure thing (the 32 million counter) went up fast, as did the block chain counter (now 1,5 million left). After the first was done, it continued (or restarted) on the second. Currently its constantly using 10% CPU, 3 to 4 GB RAM, my drive is making sound like crazy, and its increasing with about 1 block per minute. This is going to take forever. Whats going on??

A little check;

Started Eth again. Started
"Downloading block 2,427,186 of 3,858,460" at 03:07
Now at
"Downloading block 2,427,211 of 3,858,460" at 0407

Thats 25 blocks / hour. At a constant 10,0MB/s disk IO, 0.02 to 9Mbps on my network and 2GB RAM.

In short: Its going to take ~ 618TB of bandwidth, 2PB of disk i/o (so probably a few new disks as well) and 6,5 years for me to sync.

I just renamed the geth folder to geth_bak2 (I did it before) and started the app again. Block downloading got fast up until 2,112 of 2,687,392.

Chain structure is still going quickly and both are increasing.

As I'm typing the blocks are downloading quickly as well.

This time, 700MB RAM, 25% CPU (i7 7700k), 5mb/s disk and 35 mbps network.

Minute later at block 160,000 of 2,687,392 and chain structure 150,000 of 300,000 ( latter 2 are steadily increasing).

I used to have this before, and chain structure got up to like 32 million, after which it disappeared and the block download started going really slow. I wonder what will happen this time.

I've been running the download nonstop for 3 days and am at 25%, 1,684,000 blocks to go with usually about 10-12 peers. At this rate it will take 10 days assuming it doesn't crash or my 5 year old unplugs the computer. Not the best UI in my opinion but none of the other ether wallets seem trustworthy to me so I'm going to stick this out in case it works

It hasn't usually taken me that much time. I recently tried setting up a new node from my office network while connected via an ethernet cable and it was very fast compared to what I did at home on a comparably slower wifi network. Anyways, best of luck.

Hi, we have just launched Mist v0.9.1, with Light Client integration (beta).

What does that mean?

  • Sync times reduced by an order of magnitude while staying safe.
  • Much smaller storage required.

How to activate?

This is a problem for me also , when i run the light client my ETH goes to zero, why is that. So i tried running it as normal and i am at 17 percent after 12 hours.

Any ideas i could use the myetherwallet but i am unsure exactly what to do.

@NotJoking if you only want to connect to your wallet you dont need to sync the full node. you can use metamask instead. if need an example to connect metamask see this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M5uq_Y41U-M (is in spanish, but you can activate the subtitle).

if need any help send me a email rafaelosiris@gmail DOT COM.

After 1.5 weeks of fruitless attempts to download chain using "geth --cache=2048" on my HDD I ended up with purchasing a EUR115 samsung EVO 960 nvme SSD, got 10+ times speed increase and geth finally synchronized in just several hours.
I copied the block data from old HDD to SSD, so it didn't start from scratch

For those having this problem, it might be helpful to specify your operating system. So far I have only seen a few references to Macbook and Windows.

I've been trying to synch for months on Windows 10 without any luck... it keeps stalling after downloading a few thousand blocks. Meanwhile, yesterday I installed Ethereum Wallet (via go-ethereum AKA geth) on a laptop running Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, and synchronization was reasonably fast. This morning, I tried running both side-by-side, and Ubuntu started synching right away, while the wallet on Windows was stalled. So perhaps this is a problem with specific versions of the software, rather than a general bug.

& Ethereum Wallet

and Ethereum Wallet started in 5 minutes with all updated accounts and my balance.

awesome.

last time I was waiting 8 days non stop and it never synchronized

This software is absolutely 100% shit.

I run a plethora of wallets & have done for years - but this wallet is by far the worst one out there. Period. I've spent days trying to get this crap to sync. I've read every article I can find about the sync issues until my eyes bled & have tried every supposed fix or resolution - nothing works.

The only reason I'm trying to use this Ethereum crap is because one of my legacy coins went ECR20 & I needed to do a coin swap before I can trade them - but after days of frustration with this software I think I'll just accept the fact that Ethereum devs don't know what the fuck they're doing & my coins are lost.

Seriously. Fuck this useless dysfunctional Ethereum wallet crap. I'm done with it.

What do you need to do, i left the mist because that software dosen't work, but i found another way to do the same.

So explain what do you need to do and maybe we can look another solution.

You're right, it absolutely doesn't work. The only cure I found was to get rid of it completely (including the 70+Gb of useless data it tried to download) & use the offline myetherwallet version. Problem solved in 2 minutes.
I seriously can't believe that this software was even released, let alone recommended. If this is the best software Eth devs can come up with, the project is doomed.
