Slow Blockchain Download
« on: November 27, 2014, 03:35:53 pm »

Hi !

I saw a comment on the NEM forum;

Just registered my stake, NEM looking terrific and easy to download and use. Way better than other coins that i have used and its only BETA!

Hopefully NEM be fast as a lightning. I tried NXT client and it takes too much time to download blockchain,

Last time I downloaded the NXT blockchain it took 6 hours for me. How can I do this faster? My internet speed is high.

Yeah for me it takes a good 6 (probably much more) to download the blockchain from scratch. And I've got a very fast internet connection. It's always has taken ages, even downloading a month takes over a hour.

I dont think that the comparison to nem in download time is unfair because nem only has a few weeks of blocks where nxt has a years worth.

we could set up a block bootstrap download, but there would have to be a lot of trust in the person giving you the download.

nxtblocks.info
secureae.com
mofowallet
you could also connect to each node you trust directly

there are many possibilities

I would probably use such a service. But the trust issue is always a problem!

Ideally I would just want the NxtWallet to be functional as a lightweight client while it downloads the blockchain, then switch to a full node when download is complete. But again trust of public nodes being a major point, something I know you are working on Jones.

Really cool idea! I don't know if any other crypto wallet has this, would be great if Nxt would be first with this!

So funny thats exactly how mofowallet works.

New users that want to try out NXT by installing the standard client or the one Wesley made with node-webkit (I'm referring to the one with the windows installer) need to wait for hours and hours before it works. Tried it once at a friend who asked for help with his small NXT investment, sure I said, lets download the client and wait for the blockchain to load.

Lets say it got very late that night  :D
Mofowallet is at an early stage in development but it is also fully functional with a little patience people could already use it as their day to day NXT client.

Hi, I am having problems downloading the Blockchain.  It will download between 75-90% of the Blockchain and then the program will stop responding.  I've tried installing the client and downloading the chain multiple times.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks

Strange. Does it stop downloading at a fixed size or block?

You can also try to download the blockchain from another source, and then copy the nxt_db folder containing the blockchain data into your nxt folder. The Nxt PeerExplorer offers a zipped, updated Nxt blockchain download (check in the bottom right of the page).
