Blockchain Torrent Tracker to Speed Up Your Favorite Altcoin Wallet Synchronization
If you are just getting into Cryptocurrencies and started by installing the Altcoin wallet on your computer you may notice that the synchronization process with the Altcoin network is taking up quite some time. This is due to the very large blockchain that has been generated so far and it will continue to grow even bigger, so you need to be ready to wait a bit. There is however a clever solution that might speed thing up, you can download a file to help you import most of the blockchain locally much faster and then synchronize with the rest of the network in no time.
What to do guide:
* Download and install the Altcoin wallet software, run it and then close it. * Download the blockchain files (via a torrent client). * Copy the blockchain files in the folder \Users\YOUR_WINDOWS_USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\YOUR_ALTCOIN_FOLDER (for Windows) or in the Altcoin data folder for other OSes * Run the Altcoin software to import most of the blockchain locally and then to download only the rest and synchronize the client
This will get you up to speed and running in no time and much faster than running the Altcoin client and waiting for it to download and synchronize the complete blockchain from the start to the most recent blocks.
