Monero's blockchain is almost 50GB as of March 2018 and my laptop doesn't have that much space to spare anymore. Is there a pruned version of the monero blockchain?

    No. The closest is AEON's pruning described in this answer.

Just came across this very old question and saw that it hasn't been updated, yet. Yes, you can now prune the blockchain.

Look up monerod parameter --prune-blockchan here: https://monerodocs.org/interacting/monerod-reference/

There's also the monero-blockchain-prune command line tool.


No there isn't. Pruning is currently being implemented though, with chances to be in the next hard fork.
