OK Cryptocurrency Blockchain [Instant Sync]

(http://i.imgur.com/W6cdeCW.jpg)

When you load the OK Wallet for the first time it connects to the peer-to-peer network and starts to synchronize the OK blockchain.


When to use the ok-blockchain to Sync your OK wallet

The first time sync of the OK blockchain can take quite a while; sometimes up to 24 hours depending on your hardware.

With OK you can speed up this process by loading compressed backups of the OK blockchain.

Adding the current ok-blockchain to your local okcash data directory speeds up the synchronization process which will get your wallet up and running in minutes.


How to use the ok-blockchain to sync your OK wallet

1.- Close the OK Wallet and download the latest ok-blockchain.zip file from:
https://github.com/okcashpro/ok-blockchain/releases

2.- Place the ok-blockchain.zip file in the Okcash data directory, location depends on your operating system.

3.- Unzip the ok-blockchain.zip file. (includes txleveldb folder + blk0001.dat files)

4.- Start your OK Wallet and give it some minutes to finish it's first time Sync process.
(The client might be unresponsive but don't worry - it's just loading and verifying all the ok-blockchain data)


Okcash data directory location on different Operating Systems

Linux and IoT devices:

~/.okcash/

MacOS:

~/Library/Application Support/Okcash/

Windows:

%APPDATA%\OKCash

(This defaults to C:\Documents and Settings\YourUserName\Application data\OKCash on Windows XP and to C:\Users\YourUserName\Appdata\Roaming\OKCash on Windows Vista, 7, 8, and 10.)

Today while trying to download the latest blockchain, I could not get the download to start. I've restarted the zip several times and it isn't working. It says it is having problems with various file fragments and recording HTTP403.

I wish I would have seen this earlier because I've been downloading for awhile.
