Been trawling through a lot of information (I know this similar issue has probably come up a fair bit) on this issue and going round in circles a bit. I am not the most tech savvy individual, and would be really grateful if someone could has some advice that could save me time.
Here is where I am at:
- I have a Mac running OSX 10.9.2
- I have downloaded and installed the Bitcoin-QT. The synching process was just getting started and I have subsequently quit the application and downloaded the
bootstrap.datfile - this torrent is currently downloading via the Deluge application.
Thinking ahead, I have read a bit about where to place this dat file once it has downloaded. For starters, I cannot seem to locate the
~/Library/Application Support/Bitcoin/ on my mac? and I also tried the
/Users/username/Library/Application Support/Bitcoin but could not find anything. From selecting the 'Show Package Contents' for the Bitcoin-QT application itself, should I be creating a folder in here manually?
I'd massively grateful for any tips.
