Snapshot download
Syncing a fresh new node will take quite a while. You may download and use the following snapshots.
After you download the .tgz file, you can untar it into ~/.opera (or any path of your choice). Then you can run opera command with the default datadir ~/.opera (or specify --datadir <path>, if you'd like to use a custom path).

Non-pruned datadir

Non-pruned snapshot can be used to set up: (1) a read node, (2) a full archive API node, or (3) a validator node.

Steps

Steps to download snapshot and untar:
mkdir ~/download cd ~/download # then download the tgz, then untar tar zxvf <tgz_file> #[Option 1: if ~/download/.opera contains chaindata folder only] # remove ~/.opera/chaindata if it exists mv ~/download/chaindata ~/.opera #[Option 2: if ~/download/.opera contains chaindata and other subfolders] #remove ~/.opera if it exists, make sure you backup the keystore folder. # then move the untarred .opera into a path mv ~/download/.opera ~/.opera
You can also download md5 checksum file <tgz_file>.md5.
