I can only assure you that this database is my own working backup and that it has helped tons of others.
However If you don't trust my download source You can just ignore it.

The provided database files are updated roughly every 12 hours

If you are a new farmer and run full node for the first time, you can either sync the entire blockchain from scratch (Time consuming), or you can download a copy of the blockchain (Less time consuming).

If you're an old farmer with database corruption issues you may also choose to sync from scratch or download a copy of the blockchain.


A corrupt database is a database that has lost some of its data or functionality.
The corruption may be the result of several factors, to include:
 - Power outages.
 - Interruptions or crashes during the writing of data.
 - Poor structuring of the software that interfaces with the database.
 - etc.

Given the listed above, it is necessary to delete the corrupted database and restart the sync from scratch. It may take several days for the database to be synced up to date.
The provided solution that will shorten that time is to use the backed up database file from the download above.

That is why I thought it would be helpful for the masses to have a download source. So, I decided to spin up: chia.sponix.net and provide this service with 500Mb/s speed bandwidth hosting. This is on my home connection that I would like to upgrade from 500Mb/s to 1Gbps.
