I have restarted my zcashd daemon after a couple of years down and updating to 2.1.2
and I note the glacial pace of re-sync:
Downloading blocks | 225558 / ~820760 (27%) Next upgrade | Overwinter at block height 347500, in around 211 days Connections | 8 Network solution rate | 304956521 Sol/s Mining is paused while downloading blocks.
it got to 20% quickly but 5 days later only at 27% with almost no cpu activity.
is this to be expected?
if so, can a more up-to-date blockchain be downloaded/torrented?
