    There are 6,646 blocks per day on average. Peter Szilagyi said that Ethereum does 875 TPS, proof here: https://github.com/ethereum/go-ethereum/issues/16218Yeah, blocks are RLP-encoded, variable length data, mostly containing contract input.Current Ethereum growth rate on disk is 10GB per day for archival node, but for Full node it is much less.SSD disk is only around 100 bucks per terabyte. (very cheap)

  • Does Geth no-longer support the Whisper/shh API?
    reddit.com/r/ethdev | 2021-01-06
    Whisper was removed in 1.9.21. Not really sure what the motivation was, but I know it hasn't been the most stable of specifications to try and implement, and I think the person who was maintaining it in Geth stepped down.
