Hi. I am new here. I am a newbie at cryptocurrency in general. So I’m sure many of my questions are probably going to sound very beginner. I’ve tried my best to educate myself before coming here.
Context: I have a macbook I plan on selling. I bought a bunch of different crypto currencies years ago, setup their respected wallets all on the same laptop. I pretty much have not opened any of them since then bought the coins and transferred them to my desktop wallets. I’ve decided to go with a ledger hardware wallet moving forward. Now I’m trying to open all these desktop wallets and transfer them over to my ledger.
Question: My ZCash wallet will not “Connect”. It shows a “No Connection” with a stop sign icon next to it in the bottom right corner. I’m assuming this is it trying to communicate with the network. Under the zecwallet menu preferences there is a “zcashd connection” tab with “Host/Port/RPC Username/PRC Password”. It looks like at one point I updated from zcash4mac and now I’m on ZecWallet v0.76. I also remember filling up my hard drive once by trying to download the entire blockchain (because I was new and didn’t know what I was doing). And this laptop doesn’t have much space left on it, so I’d prefer to avoid this issue. Please help.
