IOHK acknowledges the downside however says that that is a attribute of a full node pockets. Their newest assist article, dated August 2020, refers the concern again to the person’s web velocity and machine specs.
“Daedalus is a full node pockets and requires a copy of the Cardano blockchain in your machine to function. The blockchain is now over 6Gb in measurement on disk as of August 2019 so in case your web velocity is kind of sluggish it might take many hours. For many customers with broadband connections and a comparatively new machine, a full sync ought to take about one hour.”
Thus far, person suggestions on the Daedalus Flight take a look at pockets has been overwhelmingly constructive.
One person commented that legacy blocks are fast to sync, whereas Shelley blocks, which make up the minority, are nonetheless sluggish. Nonetheless, the web outcome was nonetheless a reduce in sync time from 80 minutes to only half an hour.
It is quicker than it has ever been. My quickest zero to 100% was 80 minutes and now I synced in 30 minutes. The Byron blocks sync tremendous quick and the Shelley blocks sync noticeably a lot slower (final Eight-10%). Once more a large enchancment.

Elaborating additional, Hoskinson gave a breakdown of the essential areas by saying enhancements have been made to sync speeds, chain validation, and revalidation, in addition to database accessibility.
Primarily based on the suggestions of the Daedalus Flight pockets, Daedalus 2.2 ought to go some technique to enhancing the person expertise.
