XPLA Snapshots

XPLA Chain is a decentralized blockchain platform that offers a wide range of decentralized applications (dApps) and developer tools. Built on Tendermint, a popular blockchain engine, XPLA Chain utilizes Byzantine Fault Tolerant (BFT) consensus to ensure security and protect against double-spend attacks. The platform is also compatible with the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) and supports Inter-Blockchain Communication (IBC) and the COSMOS SDK, enabling seamless integration with other chains. With its proof-of-stake consensus mechanism, XPLA Chain provides a developer-friendly environment for building applications.

Download XPLA testnet Snapshot

How to use

Download the snapshot

wget https://snapshots.bwarelabs.com/xpla/testnet/xpla20240528.tar.lz4

If XPLA was already on your machine, stop your XPLA service

sudo systemctl stop XPLA.service

OR container

docker stop <XPLA_CONTAINER_NAME>

AND make sure there is no process running that might try to write to the database

ps -ef | grep XPLA-node

Make sure your XPLA data directory is clean (let us assume <XPLA_HOME> is your root XPLA directory)

Make sure to backup your priv_validator_state.json file before deleting the contents of the data directory

mv <XPLA_HOME>/data/priv_validator_state.json <XPLA_HOME>

Make sure your XPLA data directory is clean (let us assume <XPLA_HOME> is your root XPLA directory)

rm -rf <XPLA_HOME>/data/*

Make sure you have lz4 installed

sudo apt-get install lz4

Decompress the archive

lz4 -c -d xpla20240528.tar.lz4 | tar -x -C <XPLA_HOME>/data

Copy back the priv_validator_state.json file

rm <XPLA_HOME>/data/priv_validator_state.json

mv <XPLA_HOME>/priv_validator_state.json <XPLA_HOME>/data/

Start the XPLA service OR container!

What is XPLA snapshot?

Our XPLA snapshot can be particularly valuable when syncing a new node to the testnet or mainnet network. Instead of downloading and validating the entire blockchain from scratch, a new node can use a snapshot to quickly synchronize within the network.

Why use our XPLA snapshot?

Using our snapshots during the setup of full XPLA chain nodes can significantly speed up the syncing process by skipping the validation of all data. This can greatly enhance the speed of the setup. Instead of syncing from scratch with other nodes, you can utilize our XPLA snapshot to sync faster.

What is the block number of XPLA Snapshot?

A node snapshot is a snapshot of the blockchain at a specific point in time, and it includes data and state of the blockchain up until that block number. The block number determines the specific point in the blockchain's history that the snapshot represents.

The current block number of XPLA testnet snapshot is 9324614

The current block number of XPLA mainnet snapshot is 9182437

How often is the XPLA snapshot updated?

Regular updates are made to ensure accurate and up-to-date information. The frequency of the updates depends on the specific data being captured. We regularly update our snapshots to reflect the most recent and accurate state of the XPLA chain.

How long does it take to restore a node using XPLA Snapshot?

The time it takes to restore a node using a snapshot can vary depending on several factors, including the size of the snapshot file and the performance of the underlying hardware. In general, the process involves transferring the snapshot data to the node's storage and then initializing the node from that snapshot. For smaller snapshots, the restoration process can be relatively quick and may take just a few minutes. However, for larger snapshots or in cases where the network or storage infrastructure is slower, the restoration process can take longer, potentially several hours.

The XPLA testnet size is 37G.

The XPLA mainnet size is 24G.

What does it mean if a snapshot is pruned?

The pruning of a node snapshot refers to the process of removing unnecessary data from the blockchain database to optimize storage space while keeping the integrity of the data. Pruning allows nodes to store only the most essential information needed for the blockchain's operation while discarding older and less relevant data.

The XPLA testnet snapshot is pruned.

The XPLA mainnet snapshot is pruned.

What is the main difference between pruned and archival nodes?

Pruned and archival node snapshots are two different approaches to storing blockchain data in a more efficient manner. Pruned node snapshots prioritize storage efficiency by discarding older transaction data, while archival node snapshots prioritize preserving the complete blockchain state.
