Projects

Akula

Speedy Ethereum archive node. Comes with faster sync speeds, crash resilience and a historical state API. Akula leverages multiple innovations: preprocessing data outside storage engine, staged synchronization technique and a custom optimized EVM interpreter. All of this enables the new standard of performance, not seen in full nodes before. Akula beats Erigon client by 1.5–2 times on execution performance. Without building additional indexes, a full validation of Ethereum mainnet from genesis in can be completed in under 24h.
