+1 for mailing the blockchain.

I can provide this from a UK address if anyone needs this.

How can we provide an md5sum from a third party if the size is constantly changing?

The other option is pay for a VPS; it can be very cheap.

I'd like to see more blockchain thirdparty hosting

You don't need to md5sum it.  The client will verify it, and if new blocks come in as usual, it was good.

I'd be willing to mail a DVD of the current chain from the USA for actual postage cost.  Add like $3 if you want it on M*Disc.

nice story.
Agreed. Wait until the new lite overlay network and lite clients are developed. Dialup should not be a big problem at that point.

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.

Just curious, would it be possible to keep the blockchain on a server while keeping your wallet on your computer?

What about someone hosting a super compressed copy of the chain that gets updated every couple days or something. Would at least take less time to download, I'd think.

See post #12; still 600mb with the highest compression available. Cryptographic hashes are random and not very compressible.
