How to fix your WalletConnet if it's stuck on loading

  • Relaunch the app and try again. Tap the icon at the top-right corner and select Log out. Re-open the app and try using WalletConnect again.
  • Set up a VPN on your device. We recommend ProtonVPN and NordVPN (you can pay for both with BTC), but you can pick any VPN provider of your liking. See our guide Why is it important to use a VPN for more details. 
  • Check your internet connection. In case your connection is unstable or too slow, the wallet app may fail to update the balance. Just to make sure, try connecting to some other network and see if it helps.
  • Check whether you're using the latest version of our app. Open your Google Play or App Store and make sure you're using the latest version of the Atomic Wallet app. If you see the "Update" button instead, tap on it. Once the update is downloaded, re-open the app and try using WalletConnect again.
  • Restore your wallet with your 12-word backup phrase. If none of the above options helped, this may do the trick. See our guide How to restore the wallet with your 12-word backup phrase? for more details.
