Feathercoin daemon and wallet production version 0.17.0.1

Wallet sync is very slow

    @wellenreiter Hi thanks for responding. 🙂

    Apologies for my ignorance but where can I find which block the sync is at?

    I have closed the wallet and restarted numerous times but it has little effect.

    @mouth_101 To add… when I hold my cursor over the bottom right graphs of the wallet it reads that I have

    “8 active connections to feathercoin network”.

    and also…

    "Catching up…“
    Processed 1419369 blocks of transation history. Last received block was generated 1 year and 3 weeks ago. Transactions after this will not yet be visible.”

    Great, sounds like you’re past the worst bit. You’ve been unlucky, keep us informed, we can sort out a bootstrap.dat .

    That’s exactly where you can check, if the sync ist stalled. The block number shown should increase over time.

    Sorry if I may be reopening an old issue but I was having the same problem and was able to advance the sync by adding the argument -maxorphanblocks=4000 . However it has been running for almost a day now and it has only downloaded roughly 200 MB on a 100 Mbps connection… at this rate it will never finish :(. I have closed and re-opened it as mentioned here but it is still pretty slow. Just wondering if there are any other tweaks to try?

    Unfortunately you just need to leave it on till it’s done. We are working to get a new version out which will reduce the sync time greatly.

    I actually downloaded the blockchain off http://cryptochainer.com/ and now I’m up to date. 🕶

    @bittmac
    I assume you use the current production release 0.9.6.2.
    The problem is solved in the 0.13 version of the release, which will be the next production release.

    You can get installation packages for Linux systems at here
    Select your operating system and click on 'show unstable’
    No worries, unstable just means, that the software is not certified by the owners of the distribution. It’s fully stable.

    A detailed description for Ubuntu and Debian installations are here
    You also can download Windows and Mac binaries from github
