Saving blockchain history replayed time question
« on: May 01, 2015, 01:02:27 PM »

Hello,

Suppose I have two computer running the same Bitshares version.
The first computer is sync with the network and the second is out of sync.
Can I stop Bitshares in the second computer and copy the "chain" subdirectory from the first computer in order to save sync time?

Are there any difference regarding the "chain" subdirectory between bitshares_client and bitsharesGUI?

Thanks

Mostar

Are they both the same architecture and distro? If so, and both bitshares are shutdown, then yes.

No, they use the same chain/
