We have just released the latest Nethermind (full Ethereum Client written in .NET) – version 1.3.6
It comes with a huge amount of sync stability improvements for various scenarios (synching with and without receipts) and also improves a lot on connection stability by changing the sync peers ordering strategy.
We can fast sync in around 7 hours on a 4GB RAM, 2CPU VM from UpCloud (without receipts) or in around 12 hours (with bodies and receipts). This is much faster on more powerful machines!
You can also sync a full archive Goerli testnet node in around 20 minutes.
Linux, Mac – it is just three commands from the release notes and you will have options to chose the network you want to sync with
For Windows users – just download and run
