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
It’s arrived, so we’ll be setting this up tonight 😍
And we're done, just need to download the blockchain now
Once this is done, we'll be setting up a lightning node 🤑
Only 591874 blocks to go 😅
@hugo what's hosting a node give you?
@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
@shlee Let me know if you do / how you go!
