Why does my node have to sync when I first start it up?

We pre-sync the Bitcoin blockchain before sending your Casa Node to you, but the node will need to sync the blocks that occur between the time your node is produced and the time you receive it. Then it will need to sync the Lightning Network. We can’t preload the Lightning Network data at this time. Generally, your first sync after plugging in your node will take a few hours. We recommend going through initial setup so that everything starts syncing, then leaving it overnight to sync while you have sweet dreams of Lightning fast bitcoin payments.

Did this solve your problem?
