  4. Peers And Bootstrap Guide

Peers:

When running the Vulcano wallet, it may take a long time for it to find a good connection to Nodes on the network. A great way to fix this issue is to download the peers.dat file here:

https://github.com/VulcanoCrypto/Vulcano/releases

Make sure when you do this your wallet is closed and not running. When you are done downloading the peers.dat file place it in the folder your Vulcano wallet is located. To find out where your wallet is stored check out this link for more info: https://vulcano.io/knowledge-base/how-do-i-access-my-vulcano-folder/

Now when you find the folder drag the peers.dat into the folder. It is alright if this replaces the previous peers file in your folder.

With this, your wallet should have more connections than before.

Bootstrap :

Often times a wallet may take a long time to sync, this can happen due to the sheer number of blocks a wallet needs to download and run a blockchain.

Make sure when you do this your wallet is closed and not running.

A great way to fix this issue is to download the most up to date bootstrap.dat file here:

https://github.com/VulcanoCrypto/Vulcano/releases

When you download this file you will have to extract it. A great free program to extra this is Winrar, which can be found here: https://www.rarlab.com/download.htm

 

When you extract the file you must now put it in the Vulcano folder. To find out where your wallet is stored check out this link for more info: https://vulcano.io/knowledge-base/how-do-i-access-my-vulcano-folder/

 

Make sure you delete the previous blockchain data and DO NOT DELETE YOUR WALLET.DAT FILE. IF YOU DO YOUR FUNDS WILL BE LOST FOREVER.

After you are done you, now you will open your Vulcano wallet.

If you see this when you open up your wallet, you have successfully installed the Vulcano bootstrap.
