  • Option Remote Daemon Only: ElectraLight wallet will sync to blockchain located on remote node. The blockchain data will not be downloaded to your local computer.
  • Option Local + Remote Daemon: Mixed sync logic - Use the best from both ways of sync: remote (speed) and local (reliability). At wallet startup, you connect to remote node granting quicker operation state. At the same time, you download blockchain files on your hard drive. It will add more reliability to wallet operation. If remote connection fails, you will have local node running. You can also choose to run as normal full node or lite option.
  • Option Local Daemon Only: ElectraLight wallet will download all the blockchain data to your local computer and sync wallet data from local node. Required more storage space.

You can also set the Data Storage Path where your wallet file & blockchain data will be downloaded to. Default location is "C:\ProgramData\uplexa"
