What’s up, everyone? We are here to bring wonderful news for our validator community.
From April 2020, the blockchain size has been optimized and the volume requirement to run a Node has been reduced from 160 GB to 50 GB. It helps to cut down your operation cost and expands the lifetime of your Node significantly. Now let’s dive into what you need to do to update your node for the changes:
1/ For Physical Node operators:
As it is a plug & play device, you don’t have to do complicated steps. We already push a silent update to your Node on April 20, 2020. Hope you all enjoy it!
2/ For Virtual Node operators:
Login to your server and perform this command: sudo rm -rfv data
Wait until it is done. Then enter this command: sudo bash run.sh
You will get a new tag: 20200406_1
Your Node will start to sync the new blockchain data now
