I am running ZecWallet v.0.6.11 on a Mac. I understand that the first time it runs it will download the entire blockchain and this takes a really long time. (I’m at 2% after 3 hours).
My purpose is simply that I want to send some ZEC I have in a paper wallet to an exchange. Firstly, do I need to wait for my node to fully sync before I can import a private key and send my ZEC?
In the meantime I’m trying to bypass this by using an external node. I have finally been able to locate and delete my zcash.conf file. But now I can’t find a list of hosts anywhere? That is, what can I enter into zcashd connection settings for Host, Port, RPC Username, RPC Password.
Thanks for your help.
