Info

ASTOR is a non-profit research and charity pool.

Our main focus is to provide high quality multiarch Docker images for Cardano.

While initially maintained in Nessus Cardano we work with Cardano Engineering to eventually make this tech available upstream.

Yes, these images also run on low energy consuming ARM devices like the RaspberryPi.

ASTOR donates 100% of the pool's margin to charity and rewards loyal delegators through monthly dividends.

Margin:1%
Fixed Cost:340 ₳

 

Technical

ASTOR Pool is our vehicle to explore, praise, comment, contribute to various technical aspects of Cardano.
This is our contribution to "Making The World Work Better For All".

Here is how you can spin up a container based relay ...

	docker run --detach \
	    --name=relay \
	    -p 3001:3001 \
	    -v node-data:/opt/cardano/data \
	    nessusio/cardano-node run
  

The project behind this tech is Nessus Cardano.

Details about container configuration and additional built-in functionality are here.
