FOR TESTNET USE ONLY - UPDATED EVERY THREE HOURS

Gzipped Tarball


To speed up the download of the Zcoin blockchain, you can use these snapshots that are updated every three hour. The archive contains two folders which need to be placed in your Zcoin data folder.

Steps:
  1. Shutdown your Zcoin wallet.
  2. Browse to your Zcoin data directory.
  3. Linux

    ~/.zcoin

    OSX

    ~/Library/Application\ Support/zcoin/

    Windows

    %appdata%\zcoin

  4. Make a copy of wallet.dat and store it somewhere safe. (just in case!)
  5. Delete the folders blocks and chainstate in your existing Zcoin data folder.
  6. Extract the contents of the archive into your Zcoin data folder.
  7. Start the wallet with a reindex, and it will start syncing again.

The blocks will need to be verified by your wallet. Please be patient! The reindex takes about 40 minutes on desktop, and about 1 hour 30 minutes on a single core VPS.
