I just started (to try) to use Bitcoin and the first issue I face is that I need to download the 100+ GB blockchain in order to use any of the wallets, such as Armory. This can take a very long time due to my internet speed.
I successfully installed bitcoin and bitcoin-qt in my laptop, as well as Armory, but now I have to download the blockchain in order to be able to make any transaction.
So I wonder, Is there any possibility to use Bitcoin (and have a wallet, client, such as Armory) for buying and selling bitcoins without having the entire blockchain downloaded in my laptop ?
PS: I'm new to this, so any help is greatly appreciated!
