Polkadot - A multi-chain framework for better blockchain interoperability

Polkadot is a multi-chain framework that enables interoperability and scalability for multiple blockchains. See: https://github.com/paritytech/polkadot-sdk

Hardware requirements can be found here: https://wiki.polkadot.network/docs/maintain-guides-how-to-validate-polkadot#standard-hardware

Start the service with 'sudo snap start polkadot'

Check logs from the Polkadot service with 'snap logs polkadot -f'

Supported configuration options for the snap:

service-args [default=--base-path=$SNAP_COMMON/polkadot_base --name=<hostname>] For available arguments see https://github.com/paritytech/polkadot-sdk The value set here will be passed to the Polkadot binary with a few exceptions listed below.

  • --name defaults to the systems hostname the first time the snap is installed.
  • --base-path is always set by the snap to $SNAP_COMMON/polkadot_base and is not allowed to be configured.

endure [default=false] If true the Polkadot service will not be restarted after a snap refresh. Note that the Polkadot service will still be restarted as the result of changing service-args, etc.

Use this when restarts should be avoided e.g. when running a validator.
