I am currently on a connection with a download cap, and was wondering what the current download size for the whole blockchain was, and if i could reduce this download size to under 2 GB?

I'm currently using parity.

  • Disk space requirements for Parity are around 10GB, I suspect the download size is at least 6GB for the chain and another several 100MB for the state if you use warp sync. But would be interesting if someone can come up with more accurate numbers. – Waqar Lim Jun 12 '17 at 7:34
  • I compiled parity from source on fedora, and parity --help says warp is on by default, but so far i've downloaded over 15 gb, is that normal? I did interrupt the sync a few times, but i assume the sync can just start where it left off? – Frederik Baetens Jun 12 '17 at 13:19
  • You can increase the number of --snapshot-peers and try to figure if warp sync finally kicks in. – Waqar Lim Jun 14 '17 at 9:28
