if you are having problems getting the wallet to sync on windows,Linux this is how you fix it:
backup first your wallet and privatkey
Download bootstrap manually https://cdn.vericonomy.com/bootstrap.zip
Go to folder Windows C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\VeriCoin
Go to folder Linux /home/user/.vericoin
Delete files blk0001.dat, blk0002.dat and folder "txleveldb"
copy from extracted bootstrap folder blk0001.dat & blk0002.dat files and folder "txleveldb" to the vericoin folder
Start the Vericoin wallet and wait for it to load (the application seems frozen while it checks the database and syncs the blockchain so be patient)
