Elysium Pool shutting down - looking for anyone to take over our blockchain distribution service

We at Elysium Pool are shutting down our pool at the end of the month, and wanted to offer our blockchain bootstrap generation system to any pool providers/individuals for purchase.

Our blockchain bootstrap generation system was a set of scripts that ran on a VPS or similar, and was used to distribute the Chia blockchain as a ZIP file via torrent to new farmers and Chia users, so that they didn’t have to wait for the whole blockchain to sync.

It was a free service we provided as a pool to the community, and as a result, it attracted a lot of interest in the pool.

For more details about the service, see the archived version of our bootstrap page here: Chia Blockchain Bootstrap Download | Elysium Pool

Please reach out if you are interested in helping continue this service provided to the community.

Why are you shutting down?

In order to best continue to serve the Chia community, we decided to shutdown; we did not want to reduce operating costs to provide an inferior service. Ultimately, the growth of our pool was not conducive to long-term success, so we made the difficult decision to shutdown at the end of April 2022.
