This download file has about 86 GB size; decompression need some additional ~125 GB. Importing this file needs another ~140 GB. Take care having enough free disk space available for this task!


In order to get things running smoothly keep the Bitcoin-Qt application closed and follow these steps after having installed the application successfully on your computer system.

Download the latest bootstrap.dat.xz file and uncompress (7-Zip or XZ Utils) the included bootstrap.dat file into your Bitcoin-Qt application folder:

  • Unix/Linux: ~/.bitcoin
  • MAC OS X: ~/Library/Application Support/Bitcoin/
  • Windows: [User Directory]AppDataRoamingBitcoin (i.e. C:UsersMyUsernameAppDataRoamingBitcoin

Open your Bitcoin-Qt application and wait until it has “imported the blocks from disk…”. The remaining blocks until “now” will be synchronized via the peer to peer network afterwards.

Feedback on success is welcome 🙂
