Proponent Address: Wj14Wp8CD8D8K58hpxbuFSTmXyFeBvjfAoJqbHjrHRsm1pN

Requested Amount: 330$/month (±47142 tokens at the price 0,042$/astr as of today) to cover the server cost and its support.

Date: 19.01.2023

Short Description:

The snapshot service is intended for collator nodes, namely, it helps to bring the node back online in a very short time, because pruning 1000 is set.

There is also a link to our GitHub where you can find all the information related to the Astar & Shiden Snapshot service and on our Website


Hi everyone,

STAKECRAFT supported Astar since it was called Plasm Network and at the beginning of 2022 was chosen as one of the first collators for Astar. We are confident in the future of Astar and Shiden, and have been working to deliver the best uptime and additional services for them.


We want to request $1980 for Q1 & Q2 2023 (330$/month) in ASTR from the Astar treasury as a reward for providing our Snapshot service. We ask this amount for covering expenses on the server and its support.

Statistics of usage

For the period from January 1 to January 19, snapshots were used:

  • 22 times for Astar;
  • 14 times for Shiden.


We are committed to keeping the service up and running and updating it regularly.

I am in favor of this one, snapshots are still needed.
About next one: we will soon recommend to run collators as archive nodes, because parachain full nodes have proved to be subject to sibling errors.
Please consider updating snapshot to archive when we communicate about this.


okay. Will do
