I think I speak for us all when saying that we love the bootstrap.dat function to import blockchain way faster, am I right?
I wonder how they are made? I would love to host a new bootstrap.dat file everyday from Reddex so people always get download the bootstrap.dat file with most blocks in it (Highest block height)
They’ll be made public for download with FTP, HTTP/s and torrent.
So if someone can guide me to how they are made, then that would be great
I’m also curious about this. Search for it a few months ago but never really found anything useful.
Searched again today and found this… http://bitcoin.stackexchange.com/questions/10381/creating-my-own-bootstrap-dat hope it helps
tecopos Thanks, will check that link now
tecopos That seems to work, will get that sorted out with Reddex when I’ve downloaded the chain.
Thanks for the bootstrap… But I do hope laudney merges Bitcoin Core 0.10 code so our clients sync faster
Indeed… you go to https://github.com/reddcoin-project/reddcoin/releases
Find that there is a bootstrap – but the last block sync date – is not to obvious – I think the devs could add the date to the filename of the bootstrap – so in the above GIT repo
