Initial sync or resync refers to the process where your wallet downloads the entire blockchain history/records. This history begins at Divi Blockchain on 27th Sep 2018 and continues today.
Sync will happen every time you open your Divi Desktop application. However, it will always attempt to start the sync from where it last left saved. If some of the histories have become corrupt, the application will protect you and attempt a resync again.
Your asset protection and preservation!
Blockchain is immutable and immutable means unchangeable with time. When your sync is new, out of date, or unreadable, the application will protect you by attempting to re-download the blockchain history.
This process must complete for your protection and preservation. However, some features such as sending, receiving, and viewing assets may be unavailable or inaccurate during the syncing process.
To make syncing easier, Divi Labs has a process called the Divi Blockchain primer. Primer is ease of use service that will cut sync time dramatically.
Primer is on by default in every Divi Desktop Application and if offered you should try Primer we believe you will enjoy it.
