  • Service Section : In this section, we define our app configuration like port, docker image, env and args. We are using the CryptoAndFriends Docker image “Akash-chia”. Important thing to note here is that we have mentioned the mounted storage as /plots.
  • Profile Section : It contains all the specs of your deployment machine like Ram, Storage, CPU Cores and the Cost. Here we have defined the 420 Gb Ram and 512 Gb storage because we are using BladeBit.
  • Deployment Section : It contains how many instance of your application we require.
