Are there any freely available recent snapshots for the main net that I could download ? I'm looking for either full or rolling.

  • Can you update the accepted answer? – Phlogi Aug 29 '20 at 15:43

TzDutch has been providing recent backups of the chain since the beginning of betanet called quicksync. This service has proven to be trustworthy and invaluable to a lot of new node operators. They now have an import friendly version also since the introduction of snapshots.

Update: TzDutch is shut down and sadly, quicksync is no longer available. I recommend using Tezosshots, they are newer but trusted source run by an active community member.

  • Thank you for your answer and thank you TzDutch! The last snapshot from quicksync is a bit more than one month old. It's already really valuable but something even more recent would be awesome and I was wondering if something like this existed. – FFF Jun 30 '19 at 18:31

    7-zip compressed Mainnet archive files uploading right now. – Blindripper Aug 22 '19 at 6:43

There is also: https://snapshots.tulip.tools/#/

with snapshots for full and rolling, and the context and store folders as .tar.gz for archive for all networks ( the tezos node does not yet support export/import of archive snapshots, so thats why .tar.gz )


https://tezos.giganode.io provides access to daily tezos snapshots (full and rolling) via IPFS and web.



Here is an update for this question, these snapshots work perfectly when you extract them with xz.



curl -s https://api.github.com/repos/Phlogi/tezos-snapshots/releases/latest | jq -r ".assets[] | select(.name) | .browser_download_url" | grep roll | xargs wget -q --show-progress


curl -s https://api.github.com/repos/Phlogi/tezos-snapshots/releases/latest | jq -r ".assets[] | select(.name) | .browser_download_url" | grep full | xargs wget -q --show-progress
# files are splitted as max. size is 2GB on github release assets
# all in one decompress
cat mainnet.full.* | xz -d -v -T0 > mainnet.importme

You have also https://snapshots.baketzfor.me/ for mainnet snapshots.


https://xtz-shots.io provides full and rolling mode snapshots for mainnet as well as various testnets.
