    Yeah this is what i am talking about. Use 3rd party way to sync. Dash needs to be so no 3rd party is needed.

    Also, his VPS when downloading stuff directly from internet hits speeds such as 50MB/s (not mbit, m8, he has 1 Gbit/s).

    Dash IS so - his problems are solely related to his VPS performance. Downloading the bootstrap was just a suggestion to work around his network issues. If syncing with bootstrap takes ages as well his vCPU has not enough performance

    As stated by previous helper, this is not DASH's fault or problem. DASH offers a bootstrap to help people who can't/won't/don't fix their network problems.

    My VPSes' network pipe is a bit flaky at times, so I use the bootstrap, and then, since they're hosted on the same pizzabox, scp the chain across the local vnet.

    See my post edit.

    Even when i sync at home, I don't hit my 100 Mbit/s. However at BitTorrent i hit always 100 mbit/s.

    Is he trying to pull a virgin chain from behind I2P or TOR? Until you build a valid peers.dat, it can be fail trying to do it that way... Block-sources can be hard to come by if you do that, especially on testnet...

    My VPS has fat pipes, too. But if others on the host are derp with their VPSes and hog pipe, things can be unpleasant until the bandwidth ban-hammer shows up.

    So your measure is to saturate your uplink? Torrent and blockchain are totally different protocols, blockchain only connects to 8 peers simultaneously.

    Sorry, but your expectations are unrealistic.

    You cannot tell another programmer that his expectations are unrealistic. Code can be changed. Dedicated centralized reseed can be setup. Things can be done, stop lying.

    Increase the limit, simple.

    He just does know how the system works

    You're not downloading a program - Block-chains take a lot more time to Download
    To download the same size as a program will take no time at all....

    Dedicated centralized reseed

    is not what this project is about



    edit: some people here will not give you any respect if you continue to speak to Flare - or any of the other DEV's the way you are.

    Yep, I propose you submit a PR for your patch then. Should be no problem for you as a programmer.

    Have a nice evening.

    Blockchain is not much different than a program. Only thing that can slow down the process is validation, but my CPU is still not being used at more than 12% so.. what can u say?
    Fund me and I will do it.

    Mr.Ignore, tell me then why cant blockchain be downloaded at full speed if its not a protocol flaw.

    He said 8 connections, if they all reseed at 10 KB/s ofc it wont download at more than 80 KB/s.

    I think you're just a mislead boy licking ass of members with "Developer" under their name.

    I don't want to get in the middle of your rage comment spree, but seeing how sync works fine for most people, and not so well for your friend, don't you think that this might be some local problem?

    I will not discuss anything further in this tone.

    If you are unhappy with how the current protocol is implemented: love it, leave it or change it. I am working since 15 months unfunded on this project and you are the first now on my ignore list.

    Sure, it's 100% identical code. And the Bitcoin 0.9 protocol is inefficient. Bitcoin v0.10 already improved this a lot, by introducing headers first algorithm, so we should see significant download improvement when Dash v12 goes live.

    It works fine. It synced. But it can work better.

    I am sorry I upset you flare. That blue guy was talking out of his ass and he upset me.

    Yeah. I loled when that blue guy said it cannot be improved, he cant even answer why. Networking is my strong side and it certainly CAN be better.

    20 gb blockchain on BTC takes weeks to download. It cannot be improved? If you ask me, I say bullshit.

    Headers first ok, but its not solved completely until we see clients downloading at maximum potential.

    You work without funding, ok. You have a job, I have university. I need money, I can't just spend my free time working on DASH because I simply dont have free time.

    Hey, you might be a good programmer but we don't know until we see your code. Why don't you submit your PR like flare said, and now with the budget system going to be put in place, i'm sure you will be compensated.

    This is not about me being a good coder or being shit coder.

    I said important is faster blockchain sync. I got answers back: "Impossible" and "This kid dont know what he talk about".

    When the funding system is up and people fund me ill improve it. Not working for free, sorry.

    "Formating system drive now, please wait"
    LOL
    :D:D:D

    PS. I guess I finally understand what you mean by "delay" and I just never realized that you were talking about that. Preparing a fix now :)

    flare darkstrike420 No need to fight each other, fight M*nero trolls on btct if you're trying to find a way to waste you time :D

    darkstrike420 yes, there is always some room for improvements but there is also only 24h in a day. For most people V12 (and even v11) syncs quite fast so far and you only need to do this once. With that being said, no offense but we have bigger issues to fix and ideas to implement until blockchain will take weeks to download.;)
