Is there an archive location or a place where I could be able to download only the first few hundred blocks of the block chain?

1 Answer 1


If you are running the Qt client on your computer you already have them at this physical location

If you want to retrieve them through Qt's RPC facility then for index i = 0 to i = 99 iterate: getblock(getblockhash[i])
