This question already has an answer here:
Mist is synchronizing extremely slowly on Linux Ubuntu 15.10. Any way to speed it up?
Downloading block 1,081,182 of 1,521,138.
It's downloading like a few blocks per minute, tops at the moment. So I suppose I have to wait for maybe 50-500 weeks or so if the speed does not increase somehow.
Any particular reason why it's so slow? Any way to speed it up?
