I have bought some bitcoins a while back, and stored them in bitcoin core. Now I try to use them, but I have to download the whole blockchain (1 year and 23 weeks to go) which takes about forever..
I donwloaded the electrum wallet and want to wire the bitcoins to that wallet.
Is this possible without downloading the entire blockchain? It would be the first time I do a transaction with bitcoins so I am a bit careful.. There is a transaction cost I can set (normal - fast) which gives a confirmation in 25 - 1 block. Is this confirmation sent after I downloaded the entire chain?
simple question, but I do not find the answer...
thanks in advance!
