What is Snapshot

The capacity to capture the status of a computer system or storage device at a particular moment in time is traditionally referred to as a snapshot. In the context of cryptocurrencies, the process of capturing the state of a blockchain at a specific block height is frequently referred to as taking a snapshot. In this instance, the snapshot captures the entirety of the blockchain ledger, including all of the current addresses and the information linked with them (transactions, fees, balance, metadata, and so on).
