Yeah, I can confirm it works, downloads in full and restores correctly. When somebody doesn't already have Google Chrome and payware RAR utility this isn't so easy.

Payware RAR utility? There is a free evaluation whatever version that everybody uses. And what's this about Google Chrome? You have to have Google Chrome to download a file now?

re- #142.  Yes it did come back online and I did successfully download and unzip the bootstrap.dat but the website appears compromised again.  I can't submit a comment without getting "captcha timed out".

I have a query about configuring the file on my Raspberry Pi 3B running UbuntuMATE with bitcoind and an attached 375GB PiDrive SSD.  I was expecting a folder/file tree to open up on decompression - blocks, chainstate, debug, mempool.dat, etc, etc.  So how does this work?

Bitcoin Blockchain Download [bootstrap.dat]

About
Code:
block date:     Fr. 17 Nov. 2017 15:15:51
block number:   #494800
file name:      bootstrap.dat.xz
file size:      ~93 GB [94,590 MB]
file format:    compressed xz (containing bootstrap.dat)
uncompressed:   ~133 GB

Indexed with Bitcoin Core v0.14.2 on Linux (4.4.0 x64) platform.

What's new
The compression format has been updated to xz which allows the decompression of the bootstrap.dat file while downloading it. If you are an expert you can use system pipes to inject the highly compressed serialized Bitcoin blockchain bootstrap.dat to the Bitcoin Core initial blockchain loadup process.

Setup
Move the decompressed bootstrap.dat into your Bitcoin Core application folder and (re)start your Bitcoin Core client:
  • Unix/Linux: ~/.bitcoin
  • MAC OS X: ~/Library/Application Support/Bitcoin/
  • Windows: [User Directory]AppDataRoamingBitcoin (i.e. C:UsersMyUsernameAppDataRoamingBitcoin

If you don't know how it works you can check the details on the download page.
Beware that after decompressing the XY file, you need additional ~140 GB to import the bootstrap file!


Download

This is a private hosted download. To scope the hosting costs the download page requires a donation of whatever amount is suitable for you.

About

If you are an expert you can use system pipes to inject the highly compressed serialized Bitcoin blockchain bootstrap.dat to the Bitcoin Core initial blockchain loadup process.

Import performance tuning (optional)
Instead of moving the bootstrap.dat file into your Bitcoin-Core application folder you can use the command line option:
Code:
-loadblock=[path_to_your_bootstrap.dat_file]
For best import performance load the bootstrap.dat file from a second drive to optimize i/o load during import. Using an external USB3 drive is fine for that task.

To further speed up the import consider increasing the DB-cache of Bitcoin-Core, i. e. 6 GB using the command line option:
Code:
-dbcache=6144

Instead of mandatory payments for password-protected files, like in the examples above, better simply download one for free here: getbitcoinblockchain . com

Fresh blockchain + daily update torrents. Just unpack the contents from the first, bigger blockchain-directory to .bitcoin and then merge it with the updates from the second torrent.

I'm running my node on a raspberry pi 3  Cool

But you should send a tip to the website maintainer.  Smiley

Your welcome  Cool

Accordingly, to get more metal than there is in nature impossibility. And also it needs to be mined. Now there is a turnover of bitcoins worth more than 2 billion.

Hi,

I downloaded the BC from getbitcoin[Suspicious link removed] for my raspi node. First of all thank you so much for this.
The issue I had is that I had to reindex the whole stuff because the blockchain loading was not straightforward and the process is taking very long. Did I miss something or is this a mandatoryry step?

Thanks again

I've created a website dedicated to distributing various blockchains, BTC being being one of the first. I've rented a few cheapo servers to seed the torrents and I've been able to max standard cable internet connections with it.

https://blockdata.space/

A slight difference here is that each chain has a software version (currently 0.16.3 at the time of writing) so that there is no extract or import step.
