Speeding up the download 3 version

When I got my first Reddcoin Coin wallet (v.2), it took 8 days to download completely all the transactions before being synchronized on my laptop.
How many days must I wait before the new version 3 Reddcoin Core wallet would become synchronized? Is there a way to speed up the process???
I started up today Jan 23 and all I see is a very thin green line… I just hope I did not lose any of my reddcoins.
Thanks in advance for any suggestion.
