In order to get things running smoothly keep the Bitcoin Core 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 Core application folder:

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

Open your Bitcoin Core 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 🙂
