1 Answer 1


“getblockcount” tells you the number of blocks your node knows. If it’s not around 56000 (currently), it means you node is out of sync with the blockchain. You’ll need to wait for synchronisation to finish to see your transactions.

  • i am using in prune mode, is it still correct?

  • @Kamran It only advises a fee setting, doesn't change anything else, as per the documentation
