Hello everyone,


Few days ago shit happens for me and due to power failure my Bitcoin blockchain was crashed.
Google not show me any way that can help fast upload actual up-to-date blockchain.

So, I should spend a lot of time to restore my blockchain and get it back to normal functionality.

I think, the situation, when need fast get bitcoin blockchain - happens regularly, so I decided to create service

getbitcoinblockchain {dot} com

to meet this challenge.

Here there is possibility fast and easy download actual, always up-to-date, Bitcoin blockchain via torrent.
If you found this useful – you owe me the beer.

Each block is stacked on top of the previous one. Adding another block to the top makes all lower blocks more difficult to remove: there is more "weight" above each block. A transaction in a block 6 blocks deep (6 confirmations) will be very difficult to remove.

It is no longer maintained by bitcoin core because in new version node2node download is faster than torrent.

Great serivce, kudos to you !    I was looking for a pre August 1st 2017 torrent download of the Bitcoin Blockchain to jump start a Bitcoin Cash (aka Bitcoin-XT, etc. etc.) download.  Could you post a link to this older torrent ?   (Even better, why not maintain it as well for Bitcoin Cash ?  Would you consider this ? )

I have pre-fork coins.

So, I see around 20 seeds and 50 peers right now for that torrent... think it useful?

Should I continue to support this project?

GetBitcoinBlockchain out of service currently.

Some unclear issues with registrar and hosting. Investigate.

To my surprise, after 1.5 years of normal operation, the hoster blocked my account with a strange phrase "we do not support crypto sites."
The pre-payment for hosting, which I paid for a year in advance, has not yet been returned to me.

So, I looking for the new hosting right now.

getbitcoinblockchain will be not available for some time.

That's horrible bad news
You were the only source which included a full chainstate
The other person only has the Blockchain
Good luck restoring service

Great service.
Thank you for keeping it up.

One question - Is there any potential security/trust issue by downloading blockchain data outside of bitcoin network?

(* = Downloaded from bitcoin-qt)

How can this be explained?
blk00012.dat
Has anyone gotten this to work or is it just a scam / cruel way to waste peoples time?

Why doesn't bitcoin-qt use torrent automatically... Mine says it will be done in 5 weeks......Unacceptable... I'm at 20%
1000/1000 connection.
