Blockchain Torrent - Question
« on: March 08, 2015, 10:18:50 AM »

I want to provide a snapshot torrent of the current Blockchain.

What files should I include in order to make it work? The full  /chain folder?

The Chinese community has been providing chain file downloading service for a long time. It works in Windows with no problem.
Upgrade the client to most recent version, full sync, quit the client, zip the chain folder to a file, and upload it to somewhere, then other users can download and use it directly (in same OS and same client version). Not tested with different OS though.
