- Help with very slow mist sync 9 answers
I downloaded Geth 1.6.6 and ran it to sync the blockchain. It's been 24 hours, the chaindata folder is 12.4gb and it's still going. When should I expect it to be done? Is this normal (the website that I reading from said it would take "from 20 minutes to several hours") or have I done something wrong? I used the command
geth --rpc --fast --cache=1024, if that helps. Fairly new to this, so not 100% sure what's happening.
