Hello. I am new to Burst coin, as I am sure you have worked out from the nature of my problem. It has taken more than two days (well, two twelve(-ish)-hour up-time periods) to get only to May 2017.
Within the last few hours I have seen a maximum of 30 blocks per minute download speed.
This does not match up with my actual download speed, as I am able to get up to 30 Mb/s download and 6Mb/s upload when using a speed-testing site.
Would there be any reason for this to take so long?
Is this because I live in Northern Ireland? In Ireland there is only one node in Dublin.
Thanks in advance for any help I receive.
Also, how much hard drive space would be enough? I have a bit more than 500GB that I could comfortably spare for this on my PC’s hard-drive. Would that be enough that the coins gained would pay back for the electricity of leaving the PC on? I have an FX6300 CPU and a nVidia GeForce GTX 750Ti graphics card, both of which take in a bit of power when idling.
