Currently I don't have an up to date version of the real/test net on my PC. I've tried to find a blockchain explorer that will show the size of the chain in GB. Specifically for Geth, or atleast for any other clients.

Question: To date what is the current chain size in GB?

  • I was asking this question yesterday but nobody seems to know for sure: ethereum.stackexchange.com/questions/13628/… On reddit one person told me the blockchain is 140 GB. What is recommended is to run 'geth --fast console' which will get a version of the blockchain which is only 12 GB. The fast version just contains the headers... I think most people are running this version. Mar 29, 2017 at 15:04

I found a website, where apparently somebody runs a full node and grabs a screen cap of the chaindata folder size every so often. It does not appear to be dynamic, but it is the most recent thing I could dig up. It is 210 GB as of 04-November 2017.

the URL is ethereumchainsize·com
