Lightwallet change Ocean
The Lightwallet of DeFiChain interacts with the blockchain via Ocean infrastructure. Every user action is saved in a signed transaction and send to Ocean, which then executes it. So, a running ocean infrastructure is mandatory to have access to your funds with the Lightwallet. DeFiChain is a decentralized project and has alternatives to the standard infrastructure here as well.
Attention: Use only ocean infrastructures that you trust.
How to change Ocean infrastructure
If you want to change the ocean infrastructure (e.g. default ocean is down and you want access to your funds), then you can do it in the settings menu.
In the provider menu you can enter a new endpoint URL for the ocean infrastructure. The default setting is https://ocean.defichain.com and can also be restored with the button Reset provider (will be enabled after ocean was changed). You need your passcode to save the changes.
