Why does it take such a long time to process a bootstrap.dat file?

In the time span that this sat processing (more than eight hours now) I completely synced the entire 28GB of the monero blockchain. That is completely bonkers. Also, it's only now synced up to 1 year and 25 weeks behind. It's been hours.

It takes so long because Reddcoin Core 2.0 is based on Bitcoin 0.9. There has need at least an order of magnitude decrease in sync times by Bitcoin 0.15. I am working on an alternative implementation called Reddcoin Fast which will be based on Bitcoin 0.15.1 with Reddcoin PoSV reintegrated. It will use the exact same blockchain. It will also bring many other modern day Bitcoin features to Reddcoin, which otherwise is lagging badly.

Take hours? Or totally stuck? I see changes only if I kill the process and re-start again.

@1RedOne closing issue,
A number of implementations are working to improve sync times of the blockchain (including Reddcoin Core)
