ASTOR's main focus is to provide high quality Docker images for Cardano that run on multiple architechtures.
Currently, we support x86_64 and arm64 Linux systems.

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.

Fixed Cost:340 ₳



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 shelley-data:/opt/cardano/data \
	    nessusio/cardano run

The project behind this tech is Nessus Cardano.

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