as many of you know it takes a huge amount of time to sync-up to a full Monero node. So what I want to do is download the blockchain(or at least most of it) so it is much quicker; and then point that to the source of the blockchain later in the terminal (I'm using a Macbook Air.) I can't find any links to the raw blockchain anywhere, does anyone know where I can find it? Thanks!
The blockchain can be downloaded here: https://downloads.getmonero.org/blockchain.raw
Note that hours of processing power is still required to verify the blockchain when you import it. You can disable this verification by following the guide here: https://getmonero.org/resources/user-guides/importing_blockchain.html
Warning: The whole point of verification is that you can trust that the blockchain you download is not compromised. Turning verification off is not recommended.
