Testers needed: Blockchain Snapshot
« on: May 21, 2015, 08:41:34 pm »
Need some Windows and Linux testers.

Task: Try to sync my blockchain snapshot

Download: https://mega.co.nz/#!f14AVaYI!fQktgGeAx1ryXD75Ut74MO2dsBMf3BvDIPAIcWi3aEs

Wndows: go to Start > Search %appdata% > Folder "Bitshares" > replace folder chain with my chain. NOTE: Backup your Wallet before you do anything!

if it's working, I will provide a monthly torrent.

hi. i will give it a try. downloading right now. system win7x64 sp1.

edit: worked fine for me! can this eventually be more broadly promoted? getting the blockchain syncronized was the biggest hurdle for me to get the client started.

Thanks for the test. I will setup a torrent and pin it to newbies :)

Edit: or just use mega
