{"ops":[{"insert":"Subproject at Nethermind\n\nThe project is to build a service (cloud hosted) that will allow to rapidly download and launch one of the two types of client data:\nfast sync client (possibly in less than an hour depending on the connection speed)"},{"attributes":{"list":"bullet"},"insert":"\n"},{"insert":"full archive client (possibly in less than a day)"},{"attributes":{"list":"bullet"},"insert":"\n"},{"insert":"\nWe will do that by serving respectively ~200GB and ~4TB blobs / packages downloadable from a cloud provider (and potentially IPFS). Any user will have to pay to download packages that will allow them to launch a Nethermind node with most of the data already available.\n\nAlso Nethermind will run in an untrusted DB mode where it will verify each piece of data loaded from the DB the first time it is loaded.\n\nThis is targeted at users that want to save time and money when launching a node (instead of waiting for sync).\n\nIf the project collects $15k in contributions (including CLR matching) then it will get assigned a full time developer for 2-3 months, otherwise the project will be added to the list of deliveries at Nethermind and delivered as part of the Eth 1.x sync improvements and research alongside the Beam Sync improvement.\n"}]}
