https://s3.amazonaws.com/bitcoinarmory-media/announce.txt seems to contain the link to their bootstrap torrent file. They plan to change it every 2-4 weeks though and have a handful of seedboxes they pay themselves... Also they use a central tracker and set the private bit on their torrent file, so there will be no DHT or PEX for clients who respect this (most do). To me this sounds more like a way to track Armory users and a privacy risk than anything else, I'd advise against seeding the Armory torrent "for fun" or to help them out unless you know what you're getting into.

Anyways, this could be made MUCH easier for everybody involved if people would actually read up a bit on RSS feeds for torrents! /rant

I'm downloading. Thank you.
But it looks like a lot of time saved using them for more than a pc.

does this bootstrap work on all Bitcoin Core platforms? (Windows, Linux, OSX...)

It is the same blockchain everywhere, so yes.

Very important release here, thanks for this.

This change to 0.8.0 is sure to save terabytes around the net, I can't wait to understand how Bitcoin works again though since I thought we needed the chain...

Can anyone just give me a command for ubuntu to dump the blk* files into a bootstrap.dat file? I had such an example somewhere on the net but I am not able to find it anymore... Thanks!

I think the big question is, is there a way to make the default client act more like bittorrent when syncing? If someone can't mine at least they can let lots of people use their bandwidth.

If bittorrent is faster, that says to me that the client should be faster, thus giving lower speed connections the chance to run a full client.

Is there a point to this torrent now that bitcoind block verification is optimized?

The good thing about this is that it reduces the CPU load also. Whenever downloading the data my CPU is running at 80% analysing the data.

Takes like 1 day to download and the computer can't be used.

Read the first post in this thread... especially the section titled "Generate the file myself?".

Right now anyone setting up a new client with this torrent will have to update over 10800 blocks the slow way.

We should be updating this torrent every 5000 blocks or so.

If it's updated often enough, an RSS feed pointing to the torrent or magnet link some how would be handy to update bittorrent clients.  Don't know much about RSS feeds, but I've seen it in the past.

Looks like update needed Smiley
I made a linear block chain up to 309000, 7zip it and put into torrent.
It is like 12,3GB.
My home upload is ~500kb/s so it will take some time to move it to better seeds... hopefully one day tops Smiley
