My light wallet does not connect to any node in the nodelist. This is happening for a few days now. What is wrong?

Hi @bzerk,
welcome to Hello IOTA!

It seems like many of the smaller nodes are down or out of synch because they can't handle the size of the database anymore.
That's why we're going to have a snapshot on Monday and it should get better again afterwards. 

Until then you can select "Custom" in your nodelist and try any of the synched and online nodes from this list: https://iotanode.host/
I usually use either https://sakura.iotanode.jp:443 or http://nodes.iota.fm:80.
Both of them work fine for me right now.


I wouldn't be able to help anyone without thetangle.org-explorer. If you feel like you want to support its developer Mathieu Viossat in maintaining his service, please consider a donation to the address shown here: https://thetangle.org/about. Thank you!

Thank you so much! https://potato.iotasalad.org:14265 worked for me. I wonder why the website https://iotanode.host/ isn't more widely published.

Great, I'm happy you could make it work!
Actually, the node lists are pretty well known among those who use the Custom-option regularly or even the CLI app.
But I guess as long as at least some of the host nodes in the Lightwallet's dropdown are working (which is the case 99% of the time), many people just don't bother with the Custom-option unless they really have to. And that's perfectly fine! And can see that these lists like https://iotanode.host/https://www.tangle-nodes.com/ and https://iota.dance/ might be overwhelming for newbies. 

I forgot about this one, but now that you mention the salad-node, I remember that they also have a node list, which is really the most newbie-friendly one I've seen so far (and the cutest one too Smile): https://iotasalad.org/nodes

So: thanks a lot for your feedback! I'll just point people to the salad-nodes-list in the future.
