So as of this month, the blockchain size is 91905.24 / 1024 = 89.751210938 GB

UPDATE: Unfortunately, this is extremely inaccurate

After seeing the blockchain was only 90G, I decided to download the monero client with plan on running it on my 128G disk (actually 118G usable). A quick linear extrapolation of the growth over time shows that my disk should be able to fit the monero blockchain until the end of 2024.

So I went ahead and downloaded the monero cli client v0.17.3.0. After weeks of syncing the blockchain, I found the total size on-disk to be 129G.

user@host:~$ du -sh /home/user/.bitmonero/lmdb/* 129G /home/user/.bitmonero/lmdb/data.mdb 4.0K /home/user/.bitmonero/lmdb/lock.mdb user@host:~$

That’s wayy over the reported size and it will not fit on my disk :'(
