Download Latest PeerCoin Bootstrap.dat file
Last updated at 2:30am EST
Why use a bootstrap.dat file? This compressed Bootstrap.dat file is used to speed up the initial blockchain download times.
To get things running smoothly keep the PeerCoin Core application closed and follow these steps after having installed the application successfully on your computer system.
To be sure there are no issues while using the bootstrap.dat file, make sure your PeerCoin Core Application is stopped during the extaction of the files!
Download the latest bootstrap.dat.xz file and uncompress (7-Zip or XZ Utils) the file into your PeerCoin Core application folder:
- Unix/Linux: ~/.peercoin
- MAC OS X: ~/Library/Application Support/PeerCoin/
- Windows: [User Directory]\AppData\Roaming\PeerCoin
Relaunch your PeerCoin Core application and wait until “imported the blocks from disk…” has finished. Any new blocks found since the bootstrap.dat was created will be updated via the peer to peer network afterward.
