So, I downloaded ZecWallet for Mac from zecwallet.co . Today I got a text from my ISP saying that I've used 1 terabyte of data. Sure enough, my router recorded 1 terabyte of incoming traffic yesterday from somewhere.
I can't 100% verify it was ZecWallet at fault, but a quick test activity monitor seems to indicate it took 2.5gb of incoming data to sync about 0.3% of the blockchain.
Has anyone experienced anything like this, and is there a way to download the full blockchain and sync from a local source? Is there another piece of software I should be using?
I want to run a full node for all my software, so lite isn't really an option. But obviously using 8tb of data to sync the blockchain isn't really possible. Not sure if this is a bug I should be bringing up to zecwallet, or if zecwallet is even legit, or if I should be using something else. Thanks for any help, just trying to get a wallet!
