I set up my first bitcoin node and I'm a little confused with it.
So, I am trying to setup a pruned node - which from my understanding is very useful if you just need your application to verify transaction/read blocks/lookup TXIDs.
to my bitcoin.conf, and started up daemon again.
It seems like it is still downloading the entire blockchain, and its downloading oldest blocks to newest.
Did I do something wrong? Isn't the point of pruning just to download recent blocks to verify transactions? Please someone fill me in...
