Our Snapshot service

At regular intervals, we capture an image of the current state of our node, known as a snapshot. To ensure the most recent and accurate data is captured, we first synchronize the node through state sync prior to taking the snapshot. This not only allows for more efficient storage but also serves as a valuable point of reference for network analysis, and as a backup for restoring the node to a previous state, if necessary.
