How To Switch from the NEO GUI Wallet to the Neon – City Of Zion – Wallet
For those of you having problems using the NEO GUI Wallet, as it is not a Light Wallet, and requires full syncing, you can solve this problem by using the Neon Wallet. “Full Syncing” means you have to download the entire blockchain data in order to view your transactions.
