Hi everyone,

STAKECRAFT supported Astar since it was called Plasm Network and was chosen as one of Astar’s first collators at the beginning of 2022. We are confident in the future of Astar and Shiden.


We want to request $1980 for Q3 & Q4 2024 (330$/month) in ASTR from the Astar treasury as a reward for providing our Snapshot service. We ask this amount to cover expenses on the server and its support.

Statistics of usage

Our snapshot downloading statistics for Astar and Shiden showed that the snapshots were used for the period from June 1st to December 31st:

  • approx. 35 times per month for Astar;
  • approx. 12 times per month for Shiden.


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

Understood, thank you for clarification.

Thank you, that confirms it.


A snapshot service for nodes is very necessary, soon more projects will come and the network will have more usability, so this tool can be very helpful.

Unfortunately, I do not have all the required knowledge to give a relevant opinion on this proposal. I would like to know the opinions of the teams/projects using snapshots.
Maybe @bLd759 can give his opinion :slight_smile:

Thank you for the details, and thank you for your continuous support. =)
