So, judging by the term “bootstrapping”, you may have noticed that I am very new to Burst. If you didn’t, dont worry, you probably will soon.
I have been scraping the googles - from here to irc, trying to figure out if its possible to bootstrap the PoCC wallet on the mac. I realize now, after all the searching, that bootstrapping is not an term common to this community. I don’t know that I understand why fully… which is not surprising considering I do not come from an especially strong computer science background. It took me the better part of today to get the damned thing installed. Hell - i just figure out how to use homebrew.
so - is there a downloadable db (bootstrap!) out there for this blockchain yet? will there ever be? is this the correct place to ask? I may copy this to the github issues and see what comes up as well.
the other, burning question I have is this - and please go easy on me because I know its got to be a stupid one…
where in the heck does the burst sync process store all that data when it pulls the chain off the network? I cant find the directory for the life of me.
I just want to exclude it from my timemachine backups for the moment.
any help is immensely appreciated!
