Generates daily bootstrap.dat files for the ION mainnet and testnet networks.


  1. Download and extract one of the below links
  2. Place the bootstrap.dat in the root of your ION Core data directory
    • Linux: ~/.ioncoin/
    • Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/ioncoin/
    • Windows: %APPDATA%\ioncoin
  3. Run your wallet and let it sync using bootstrap.dat
  4. Once the sync is complete bootstrap.dat will be renamed to bootstrap.dat.old and can be safely removed

Note: The bootstrap.dat for testnet must be placed inside the testnet folder of your data directory.
