I'm having issues syncing geth and parity as detailed in other posts. What would be ideal is if you could sync starting from the current block only as I dont really need historical blocks anyway. Is there a way to do this?
i.e. you would provide or 'seed' the information required to mine the next block; take for example block 4636585 I'm not sure on the exact technical details (and hence this question) but you would provide geth or parity with the details from a trusted source so it could continue from an arbitrary block number.
