Downloading blockchain

a new user was asking whether there is a download of the blockchain available to avoid syncing for so long… sounds like a good idea. is this available - or could it be provided (perhaps on a weekly basis as an example)? thanks for any responses…

here is the link to the original question on reddit:

might someone know something about this?

for bitcoin there is bootstrap.dat, I don’t know if that feature is available in primecoin tho

thanks for that, i was more thinking for peercoin. is there a boostrap.dat downloadable for that?

just wondering if anyone knows any more?
