Syncing a new Triangles node takes time.
You can use a "blockchain bootstrap" to update your node to the bootstrap's creation date.

Please read the guide below if you have any question where your Triangles' data folder is located.
A brief outline of best practices for setting up a new cryptocurrency node.
( 1 ) Know the location of Triangles' data folder:
This is the home of your blockchain data and your wallet.dat!
( 2 ) Encrypt your wallet.dat by selecting OPERATIONS -> ENCRYPT WALLET
Triangles will close while encrypting your wallet.dat.
Reopen Triangles and unlock your wallet to test the password you just created.
Select OPERATIONS -> UNLOCK WALLET
( 3 ) Backup your wallet.dat by selecting FILE -> BACKUP WALLET
Another way to backup your wallet is by manually copying your wallet.dat from the Triangles data folder.
Secure your wallet backup on at least 2 other devices like a USB or private cloud. You can name it something other than wallet.dat like tri_current.dat. Your Triangles node will only interact with the wallet named wallet.dat. You will need to close and reopen your node each time you want to access a different wallet. A single wallet.dat can hold a countless number of unique TRI addresses.
( 4 ) NEVER send coins to your Triangles node until it is fully synced!
Ideally you have secured your wallet backup as well! If anything unfortunate should happen to the device your Triangles node is running on, you will be able to use your wallet backup to access your coins! Make sure your wallet backup is named wallet.dat when you place it in any working Triangles data folder. Your wallet.dat will work in any Triangles data folder regardless of the operating system it was created on. If you update your wallet.dat password, all previous copies will still work with the original password.
( 5 ) Unlock your Triangles node by selecting OPERATIONS -> UNLOCK WALLET and check "for staking only" when entering your password.
If you chose not to encrypt your wallet, it will begin staking automatically when your coins have "matured". Staking is active when the triangle in the lower right hand corner glows red. You can hover your mouse over the triangle for staking information.
Node not connecting If your wallet says "out of sync", you may have a connection issue. Check the icons in the lower right hand corner of the wallet OR the INFORMATION tab found by selecting HELP -> Debug window. Downloading the peers.dat from the "bootstrap folder" above can help with most connectivity issues. Because Triangles connects through TOR, you will need to run Triangles through a VPN if your country blocks TOR.
Wallet issues Most issues can be corrected by running repairwallet in the command line of the CONSOLE tab found by selecting HELP -> Debug window. If your node gives you a "blockchain" error and crashes at opening, Triangles most likely had an unexpected closing and some of your blockchain data is corrupt. It is best to secure your wallet.dat, delete all other blockchain files/folders and use the blockchain bootstrap above to quickly resync your node.
