Current version: Bitcoin Core 0.16.3
I think I have a corrupted blockchain download as my VM box was shut down in the middle of syncing. Which is why I'm doing a -reindex-chainstate
I have the entire Bitcoin blockchain synced at (250+gb), but its been stuck on "connecting to peers" for the past 12 hours. So this is why I'm assuming I need to do a -reindex
Is there a faster way of syncing -reindex as of October 2018? I read a few other solutions but its for older versions of Bitcoin core.
