I like Mintcoin but I downloaded the wallet for windows and it would take almost a day to download for 6 months of a Blockchain. I wouldn't say this issue would have to do with the Blockchain size, more that the GUI needs improvement in how it connects and downloads the chain from other nodes. Something I have found quite useful when wanting to quickly sync a Blockchain is to have someone on the longest chain make a copy and publish it to Megaupload or Dropbox where you can download a 600-700MB Blockchain in about 20 minutes so you end up only needing to finish the last 1-2% of the Blockchain (you would need to test the security of this if you do this but you need to atleast change your RPC username and password). I have also been toying with the idea of how you could use Torrents to download the Blockchain in a spactical manner.

What some coins have also done in the past is swaps to a different Blockchain through an automated process and start from scratch once again. If you took it in terms of swapping for exactly the same thing, it would prune off all the excess Blockchain bloat and you can quickly sync again so then it stands to reason that it could become a piece of the Blockchain and regulate it's size.

I agree, this is a large issue. Took me 3 work days 8-5 to finish it last week.

Mintcointeam;

Please remove the music video from the top of the first post it lacks talent, the song is annoying, it is not hip at all, and makes this coin look like a joke.   Thank you.

AGREE!!
It's not really a video, isn't it? It was kinda interesting at first but is not a tool to encourage people to invest.

I agree. Syncing the wallet is painful. Something needs to be done to speed up the process.

I have never played that song, until people started to say it should be removed.
You know what happen when I listened to the song?

Yep, that is true, music taste tends to crystallize when you are young, everything than is produced after your 21st birthday will eventually be painful for the ears.

But that song: the pain, the suffering... My ears stopped bleeding, but I still have a headache.

Yes I made a guide a little while ago on what to do to quickly sync a Blockchain and might be worth looking into a bit further because it would cut that 3 day Sync time down to about 1 hour. I would like to state that I have had no problems with it but it doesn't mean that there may not be. It is a good idea to only receive files from people you trust and store your keys securely.

Here is the guide I had made for it a couple months ago.

Quote

How to quickly sync your wallet with a QT client


Step 1

Download the most up to date Client, and latest copy of the Blockchain and Colossuscoin.conf file

Windows Client 1.5.2
ColossuscoinBlockchainApr17.rar
Colossuscoin.conf

ColossuscoinJuly27th.rar (Including Conf file)

Step 2

Go to your Download folder in your computer, right click on Col 1.5.2.rar and extract the files to a folder in which you can find.



Step 3

Open your ColossusCoin-qt.exe file for the first time, wait until it opens and then close the client, this will automatically create your roaming files for you. (Ignore this step if you already have had a client but wish to update or sync quicker).



Step 4

Go to your Colossuscoin folder which is found in User/Appdata/Roaming/Colossuscoin and delete everything in the folder except your wallet.dat Your wallet.dat contains your private keys, if you delete that you will permanently lose your coins so please make a backup of it before deleting anything.



Step 5

Go back to the folder in where you downloaded the files in Step 1, right click on the Blockchain file and extract the files to your Appdata/Roaming/Colossuscoin folder. Right click on Colossuscoin.conf file, copy it and paste it into the Appdata/Roaming/Colossuscoin folder as well. Your Colossuscoin Folder should now contain all the files you need.




Step 6

Open your ColossusCoin-qt.exe client and let your client fully sync. If you have coins available to Stake, they will Stake once your client is fully Synced and you can leave it open until they are fully confirmed (which is 70 confirmations on the network)

Step 7 *optional*

If you would like to check your wallet for coins that may not be showing up in your wallet, click on "Help", "Debug Window" and click on the Console tab.

Type Checkwallet to check for any coins that may be missing and should say "wallet check passed" : true

If it returns "Mismatched Coins" Type Repairwallet and it will fix your balance.

Thanks for the guide Crestington. Very helpful.

Still. The long sync is bound to be confusing and frustrating for new users unfamiliar with wallets. The wallet should be seamless after the install. I am comparing the Mint wallet with Ltc and Vert wallets. They sync up quite quickly out-of-the-box.

I think you should take the time to sync it normally if you want to have a fully verified blockchain. Most of the time it takes is not from downloading the blockchain, but in the network verifying that each and every block is legit. And this is the baseline for having your money secure.

I updated a dead link to the newest copy I have and will also fix the picture to show contents of the file for reference. The point here isn't about the Blockchain I have because it would take me too long to download all of Mintcoin, however if someone had a full copy of the Mintcoin Blockchain (preferably from a node with no balance) then they could spend some time and upload a secure hosted link with the Blockchain. Zipping the file also compresses the size of the Blockchain so if the Blockchain is about 810 MB, when compressed in a Zip or Rar file it is about 524 MB or a 34% reduction in size.

If Mintcoin is 2-3 years old and the Blockchain is 3-4 GB and someone new has to Sync from scratch then it could be 15-20 days in order to just sync your wallet, this is a bit of a quick and dirty method to negate some long-term Bloat issues.

Block 620303   2014-08-06 22:53:27

thank you. this explorer should be posted on the first page. there are still a lot of dead links.

Question:

I bought about 28.5-million Mintcoins the other day and sent them to my wallet.... I am wondering why my address not showing up on either of the block explorers under the rich lists?

My address has exactly 28,457,314.05362 coins.
According to http://mint.blockexplorer.cc/richlist/ I should be ranked at about #108.
According to http://mint.blockx.info/richlist/ I should be ranked at about #114.
Why are the two Rish Lists showing different information???

When I look it up on the block explorer, everything is fine in the details. I just don't get why this information isn't getting updated on the rich lists.

Here is a link to the address showing my balance is valid and confirmed.
http://mint.blockexplorer.cc/address/Mn4DD5eSVvf8VQzWfx6RYNTWXjHgUQf2Lw

So why wouldn't it be showing up on the Rich Lists???

I'm sure I can't be the only one this is happening to,
It's a little confusing,
Thanks.

Obviously the block explorer is still having issues.
