Windows blockchain download?
« on: January 09, 2014, 04:39:41 PM »
Hi - new user, just trying to get started, but at the moment it's nothing but frustration trying to download the blockchain.

Is there any chance someone could post a copy up to a certain (recent) date? I've so far spent nearly two days downloading, and am only at 70%! I see that someone has kindly posted the Linux version, but the Windows QT client seems to use a different format so this becomes unusable.

I'd suggest a torrent or dropbox being created on a, say, monthly basis - as a new user it's not encouraging when it looks like it'll take nearly three days to set up! And it's only going to get bigger... :-)

Cheers!

Yes, I'd love to see more support for this. Having posted the Linux one, I understand how important it is for new users to get up and running quickly. But I don't run Windows :\

Packaged up the blockchain from the new 8.5.3 win32 client.

Looks good guy's,

I think fastcoin.ca also updated their download page to include the Blockchain download as well

http://www.fastcoin.ca/downloads.html

Its great to see this coin continue with development, so many other coin's have very little community involvement, I must say the FastCoin community is one of the better ones out there for sure.
