Bitcoin Core Download Blockchain

This section shows Bitcoin Core downloading the entire Bitcoin blockchain.

After I started Bitcoin Core, it will take some time to download all transactions recorded in the entire Bitcoin blockchain to my computer. That's about 150 GB of data to be downloaded.

Depends on how fast my Internet connection is, the initial download process will take hours or days as shown on the Bitcoin Core window:

While Bitcoin Core is downloading the entire Bitcoin blockchain, I can actually start to send and receive Bitcoin funds now. Now need to wait to the end of initial download process.
