Preloading bitcoin core blocks data
Hi, I'm setting up a bitcoin node using Bitcoin Core on UmbrelI noticed that the syncing is relatively slow. I investigated a bit and found that the bottleneck is that my node often connects to peers that stall block transfers.
My goal here is to speed up the initial syncing process.
I went to the app data directory
data/bitcoin/blocks and found a list of files namedblk00000.dat
blk00001.dat blk00002.dat blk00003.dat ... rev00000.dat rev00001.dat rev00002.dat rev00003.dat ...
Is it possible to pre-download block data, extract data, and bootstrap the node with it? If so, where can I download it?
