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
Extract 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
Windows C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\VeriCoin
Linux /home/user/.vericoin

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)
