DAPS Bootstrap Installation and Instructions 4 — DAPS Coin

Updated: August 2020

In the event your wallet got stuck on an incorrect block count such as because of a fork or for any other reason, you can install the bootstrap.

Please note that the bootstrap is only intended for wallets that are stuck at a certain block or an older block than the rest of the chain.

So if your wallet is already properly synced you should not use the bootstrap.

Let’s get started!

So, what is a bootstrap?

A bootstrap contains a set of files that help your wallet to pre-load the blockchain to a certain block-height.
This way your wallet can skip having to download all those blocks itself.

  1. Make sure you have already written down your 24-word mnemonic phrase. Once done, close your wallet.

Once your wallet has fully loaded it will continue syncing the last bit to reach the current block height.

You can check what the current block height is by looking at the explorer: https://explorer.dapscoin.com/api/getblockcount

And that’s it!

If all goes well, this should now fix the problem and let your wallet sync to the current block. If for some reason it did not work, simply repeat the process.
