I'm going to try running bitcoind and lnd (lightning network daemon) in Kubernetes on my NUC πŸ€“

I'll try pulling the blockchain onto my NAS, but I might be better off storing it on an external hard drive πŸ€”

Ordered an HDD for this, but going to set it up on a Raspberry Pi first to get a handle on things, then look at migrating to :k8s:

It’s arrived, so we’ll be setting this up tonight 😍

And we're done, just need to download the blockchain now

@shlee I'm just generally interested/passionate about it. Hosting a lightning/bitcoin node gives you sovereignty/privacy and peace of mind, but with a lightning node you can actually collect fees for propagating transactions across the network

@hugo Ok.. I've heard about the raspiblitz thing.

Might consider buying an LCD screen for a rapsi and host a node
