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... :-)

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 :\

Looks good guy's,

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

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.
