Is it possible to move pre-downloaded Nu blockchain to another computer?

I am trying to set up a raspberry pi for minting, and the download process for the blockchain is taking forever. I already have it downloaded on my home computer; is it possible for me to transfer that over to the Pi, so I don’t have to wait days for it to download again?

I do that all the time. copy blk* walletS.dat database/log* nu.conf, set files readable only by owner. you can copy addr.dat too. but it’s not mandatory.

I thought this was introduced recently, or not introduced yet … Am I wrong (cc @CoinGame) ?

I’m not sure to be honest. It’s been a while since I’ve tested it. I think there’s issues with doing it across platforms because of differences in file systems, but from Linux-to-Linux I don’t think there’s an issue. It should just be a simple copy/paste of the data dir.

I remember at some point proposing offering a bootstrap.dat over torrent , and I wanted to get it added to the tutorial on . Then someone stopped me, I thought it was you.

Sorry, I must have done some confusion, can’t find the thread so was probably in a chat.

Nu doesn’t support the boostrapping file. It was introduced in Bitcoin well after Peercoin forked. Nu and Peercoin are really behind on the Bitcoin developments.

Nu 2.1 will support the bootstrapping file.


Anyway transfering between win 32bit and raspi works.
