Improve Wallet installation and Blockchain Download, please
« on: March 15, 2015, 11:05:50 am »

Hello,

it is a real pain to download the blockchain and even each start of the wallet takes too long for my taste (which I think would be the taste of most mainstream users who are not computer geeks and just interested in a good payment system etc.).

However, this does not seem to be unique to NXT but also other cryptowallets/currencies (but not all of them).

At least I found an idea from another NXT-derived cryptocurrency: At burstcoin you can at least download a wallet which has already a big part of the blockchain in it, so that the following download over the lame network does not take days.

Thanks

Hubus

I guess you are talking about a Checkpoint?

I don't know how this is called, but it must be possible to download the latest blockchain in a separate zip-file or similar on the homepage. The download over the network just takes too long!

(I also see an analogy to antivirus programs or similar: You get some of the antivirus definitions already when you download the program so that you don't have to update so much after installation. With the difference that it doesn't really matter for an antivirus program, as the download would not take days - but with the NXT wallet it does.)

Ah, thanks (but my download is complete, anyway, it was only a suggestion for improvement for new users).

Yes, you should really make it more prominent and include this information at the wallet download page or instructions.
