Title: Compressed blockchain
Post by: zesterer on January 04, 2014, 03:08:35 AM
Here's a compressed blockchain from roughly 02:00 AM GMT+0 Jan 4th 2014 for anybody struggling to cope with the synchronising times.

Simply drop the contents of the zip file into your .fastcoin folder in the /home/user directory (can someone tell me the Windows equivalent?):


Download the file: blockchain.zip (https://dl.dropbox.com/s/9c1hsgbnj21px9z/blockchain.zip) (657 Mb)

Even better, there's now a torrent! Please, please please seed it for as long as you possibly can to make sure it stays alive! Download the torrent file here: blockchain.zip.torrent (https://dl.dropbox.com/s/u2357y9ld7o1e29/blockchain.zip.torrent)

Thank you, this was a tremendous help. Perhaps we can have a regularly updated compressed blockchain available in the downloads area. I think once a week would be fine. This would be a great benefit to new users. I would be happy to compress and upload it myself if needed. I certainly have the bandwidth to do so. I also like the idea of putting a link into the wallet to download the latest one as another poster noted. Synchronizing the chain is extremely slow. I am aware that its slow on other coins as well, but any extra help on getting it done faster would be appreciated by many.

The current actual windows wallet version is 8.7.2 (http://sourceforge.net/projects/fastcoin/files/win32/0.8.7.2/). For faster synchronisation you can download the blockchain snapshot from here (https://tr.im/FSTblockchain). Just unpack it using 7-Zip (http://www.7-zip.org/) archiver or WinRAR (http://www.rarlab.com/) to this folderr: C:\Users\Admin\UserName\Roaming\Fastcoin.
