As the network scales and increases in size and relays, your node needs to keep up both vertically and horizontally.
Calculating The Resources Needed
There is no exact formula to calculate the resources needed to scale your node but you can start with the items outlined below as a reference.
Depending on your servers setup, whether VPS or personal server, you would need to scale your server by increasing the following:
- CPU(or vCPU)
- HDD(or SSD)
Pocket blockchain is est to scale at 154 GB's a year in block data
As of now(in RC-0.5.0) one method that you can do is to stake across multiple full or validator nodes.
Example: Instead of staking one validator node 30,000 POKT, split it up into two portions and stake two validator nodes instead of one.
Always make sure you have a buffer amount in case your node gets jailed/slashed
