Lazy Bootstrapping



  • Lazy Bootstrapping support is included in the V17.0 (Boulton) release.

  • Development Progress can be tracked here


With the introduction of Lazy Bootstrapping, nodes monitor the real-time network and waits for blocks to be confirmed. When a block is confirmed, all of the previous blocks on its account-chain are also accepted by the network.

Because the bootstrapping network scales as more nodes are added to the network, by moving traffic off of the real-time network, lazy bootstrapping presents a more efficient method of adding blocks to a ledger in bulk.
