Sync from Snapshot
Shortcut to sync a node to the mainnet from a snapshot
To restore a node from a snapshot we need to follow instructions for Joining Mainnet up to installing and configuring cosmovisor, but DO NOT start the node.

Polkachu Validator provides the community with daily snapshots for the Juno Network. The snapshot server is periodically state-synced, so the snapshots do not contain full history, but are small in size.

sudo systemctl daemon-reload
sudo systemctl enable cosmovisor
sudo systemctl start cosmovisor
Check it is running using:
sudo systemctl status cosmovisor
If you need to monitor the service after launch, you can view the logs using:
journalctl -fu cosmovisor -o cat
