Monero syncing via the daemon can take days/weeks. Where can I download the entire 50GB+ monero blockchain from a fast connection?

  • Why does it take days/weeks ? Do you have a a slow HD ? If so, downloading the chain won't help. It'd only help if the bottleneck is your network connection to other peers, and somehow the blockchain.raw download site is faster, but that's unlikely. – user36303 Jun 9 '18 at 12:51

The current blockchain can be downloaded from https://downloads.getmonero.org/blockchain.raw

  • Do I have to unzip this .raw file or just copy it to my .bitmonero folder's root directory? What do I do with this after downloading it? – Patoshi パトシ Dec 26 '18 at 21:56

  • @jtgrassie is there an alternative source like torrent? Because sometimes, the speed of server decrease and becomes very very low. – user2284570 Nov 24 '19 at 16:36
  • There's really no point to use the .raw file these days. Better to just let the daemon sync the blockchain from the p2p nodes. – jtgrassie Nov 24 '19 at 18:59
