When you first install the CandyCoin wallet, it will need to download the entire blockchain from the network. This is unfortunately a very slow task that can take hours if not days. To speed up the process considerably (or just be nice to the folks with tiny bandwidth caps) we have set up a server to automatically distribute up-t0-date bootstrap.dat files.
Some step-by-step instructions:
Depending on how old your copy of bootstrap.dat the remaining blocks will still need to be downloaded from the network. The server currently automatically generates a new bootstrap.dat file every four hours, but this may change in the future.
After the sync completes, you don’t need to do anything – the wallet automatically renames the bootstrap.dat file so that it’s not re-imported again the next time you start it up.
