    Another update, another sycning blocks issue...sigh. Bring on Ledger support so I can forget how frustrating Daedalus is.

    Sending report and logs now.

    This is what I did:
    1: Go to yoroi it's a chrome extension.
    2: Import your funds from the deadalus wallet to yoroi with the same 12 words you got when creating your wallet(s) on deadalus.
    3. Uninstall deadalus (this will not delete the blockchain database).
    4. Restart computer (just to make sure)
    5. Download new Deadalus version from official website and install ;)
    6. Start sync process or whatever (took me an hour or so)
    7. Create a new wallet on your deadalus with 12 new words
    8. Send back funds from yoroi to your NEW wallet you made
    9. You are safed :)

    I love Cardano, no doubt. The wallet Daedalus however is hopeless, timeconsuming, a poorly designed customer interface. When does IOHK provide a wallet which is up to date ? Or on a Ledger Blue?

    Syncing has the speed of 0,01% per minute, at 85% now this means 1500 minutes to go at the least. 25 hours.....

    ljserne We are still working on hardware wallet support, sorry it's taking some time. 

    The Daedalus wallet is a full-node wallet, so it can take time to install and be difficult to use. We have a light wallet that is a chrome extension, which is easy to install and use. You can find more info at https://yoroi-wallet.com/#/.

    Using your 12-word Daedalus wallet recovery phrase you can migrate your Daedalus wallet to Yoroi. See this video for more information on that process: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m4tiF1R0_40

    You can also transfer the ADA in your Daedalus wallet to your Yoroi wallet (if your Daedalus wallet if functioning properly).

    The problem is that the Daedalus wallet, even the new version, does not work at all anymore. Yoroi is therefore not an option

    You should be able to use Yoroi just fine and migrate your Ada to tour Yoroi wallet using your 12-word Daedalus wallet recovery phrase independent of any issues with Daedalus. Check this article for more info.

    When the Daedalus wallet cannot run at all, one cannot approach the ADA as you must be aware of. This means that provided " support" is not support at all. Please HELP?
