  1. I have experienced installing the bootstrap.dat file on both Windows 10 and Linux Ubuntu 16.04. The latter was painless, performing as expected. However, the Windows 10 installation was frustratingly slow; taking well over six hours before finding the problem. I should point out, I was using the current bootstrap file (at the time), of Mincoin-1901594-bootstrap.dat at https://github.com/mincoin/mincoin/releases The problem was Windows' Security, namely Virus & Threat Protection. Once I disabled it, the installation progressed at a much faster rate. A suggestion: before proceeding to temporarily suspend protection, you should have downloaded the bootstrap file and completed all internet activity for the duration of the update Disable protection: Open up control panel, click on Update & Security. On the left, find and click Windows Security, then click Virus & Threat Protection. In Virus & Threat Protection settings turn off Real Time Protection Install update: So, the file is downloaded and you have closed your internet browser. You must now copy/move the .dat file to your MNC wallet's location. It must then be renamed to bootstrap.dat otherwise the wallet won't see it. If your wallet is running, you must stop it. Start your wallet. In the bottom left corner, you should see text "Importing blocks from disk". walk away, have a nice cup-of-tea and a slice of cake Note: Do not (unless you really have to) close the MNC wallet during the update. A restart causes the wallet to check the progress of the bootstrap update, resulting in lengthy delays Post update: After your wallet has fully synchronised, you must re-enable the Anti-Virus Real Time Protection I hope this helps someone. I had the good fortune to be able to talk to Xi at the time Good luck
