  1. This is like downloading the blockchain up to block #721000. It's just to speed up the process for downloading the full blockchain on full node wallets. It's much faster than letting the wallet do a full sync of the blockchain from zero.

    It's also helpful if you're forked (not on the correct chain) and need to download the full blockchain again.

    If you're on the correct chain or if you already have the full blockchain you don't need the bootstrap file.
