Running A Full Node - Bitcoin

Bitcoin - The Currency of the Internet

A community dedicated to Bitcoin, the currency of the Internet. Bitcoin is a distributed, worldwide, decentralized digital money. Bitcoins are issued and managed without any central authority whatsoever: there is no government, company, or bank in charge of Bitcoin. You might be interested in Bitcoin if you like cryptography, distributed peer-to-peer systems, or economics. A large percentage of Bitcoin enthusiasts are libertarians, though people of all political philosophies are welcome.

I run a bitcoin node (Bitcoin Core version v0.20.0), is it as safe as a hardware wallet?

I keep my seed on a Nano.
But was wondering if the Core software wallet is as secure as the hardware wallet.
Sorry if I am asking a dumb ass question.

Finally running a Bitcoin node!

Today, I have finally downloaded the full block chain and am running a full bitcoin node (took ~3days).
I have a blockchain explorer, but I still need to work on installing and running lightning network, and exploring other tools. It's a good feeling. I will write up what I bought, what I returned, and how I got on.
Just wanted to tell someone... pretty excited to be a part of the Bitcoin Full Node community.

What is the best hardware to use to run a bitcoin node?

Can I just use a dedicated laptop?
Why does everyone use a Rasberry Pi?
Can I just use my ordinary desktop?
What are the benefits/drawbacks for each?
Thanks for your thoughts

How to run a bitcoin node as a traveling digital nomad?

I would like to upgrade my bitcoin citizenry status and operate a full node, but the problem is, I have not found an easy solution that works with my lifestyle.
I am a "digital nomad". I do not have any permanent home base. The longest I normally stay in any single location is about a month.
I travel light, since my entire life needs to fit into luggage.
Hardware that is already in my travel kit includes an iPhone, a Macbook, and a Trezor one.
Is there an easy solution to running a full node with this kind of lifestyle?
Can I utilize any of my current kit sufficiently? Or do I need separate/additional hardware?
Does it make sense to run a full node from my MacBook? Would this interfere with how I need to use and rely on my MacBook for my other tasks/work?
Do regular and intermittent internet stoppages matter? (Since I travel often, the node would be disconnected often and reconnected to a new WiFi network,etc).
Any insight and recommendation is greatly appreciated. Cheers

How is running a Bitcoin Node safer and more secure than using someone else's Node?

It's widely regarded as best privacy and security practice to run your own node.
I understand the privacy benefit; if you're querying someone else's node it's less private that using your own node.
What I'm less certain of is the security benefits of running your own node. As a non-IT expert, putting your trust in an industry professional like Trezor, Ledger or any other of the big wallets seems like a sensible move. These guys are experts, and their nodes are used by many people.
If I made my own node, surely there is a risk factor here. My online security is not likely to be as bulletproof as the nodes used by the wallets mentioned above. What's to say I don't download a bug in the software I'm running my node on?

Running a Bitcoin Node and Monetization

if this has been asked before, would appreciate if someone can point me to it.....i understand that miners are getting paid for solving the block hash and participate in pools to increase their chances but also split the reward. my question is regarding settlement of transactions by normal btc users running full nodes. i know when i am sending btc to someone or transferring from on chain to a off chain wallet, there is a fee i have to pay to settle that transaction. is that fee paid to normal full node operators and if so, is that not a passive income strategy? to just run a btc full node and participate in settling onchain transactions and collect whatever $1,$2,$3,$5, etc.....

How "risky" is it to run a bitcoin node?

Just saw the post about the node validating, taking to a friend who knows more about bitcoin than me since it seems like a good thing to do and his comment was that I shouldn't cause its risky. And that's it, just told me not to do it. I would be running this on my PC and I meet all the requirements. Thanks.

Why do I want to run a Bitcoin Node? I have a raspberry pi I use for a couple services, can I run a Bitcoin node with them, or does it take over the entire machine for that purpose?

Not sure if this is the best subreddit to ask about the software part, but I guess it is the right place to ask about the benefits.
Why do I want to run a node? Do I get faster transactions? Lower fees? Do I earn anything? Is it anything more than a wallet?

Running a Bitcoin Node Help

I have one of the latest top specs Mac Mini that I use as a server in my home. I also have a mid range Qnap with 80tb at hand.
I am thinking about running my own node as I have the bandwidth and specs, however on a mac.
1 - does Bitcoin core for mac run well? I saw it quite old as a release.
2 - would running a Bitcoin core on a mac but store the data on a fast NAS be ok in principle?
3 - would I make my system more vulnerable to external attacks? I have a SSL certificate on my NAS but as I have work data on it I really do not want that compromises.
4- I Have BTC and looking to HODL and I currently store offline on a trezor and safety stored in my safe. In the future can I get my trezor to speak with my node?
5 - once the node is running if I want to buy more BTC must I buy them on a exchange? I use kraken.
Any help would be great.

Running a Bitcoin node on a $11.99 SBC

Running a Bitcoin node on a $11.99 SBC
Just wanted to let you guys know that I'm successfully running a (pruned) Bitcoin node + TOR on a $11.99 single board computer (Rock Pi S).
The SBC contains a Rockchip RK3308 Quad A35 64bit processor, 512MB RAM, RJ45 Ethernet and USB2 port and I'm using a 64GB SDCard. It runs a version of Armbian (410MB free). There's a new version available that even gives you 480MB RAM, but I'm waiting for Bitcoin Core 0.19 before upgrading.
To speed things up I decided to run Bitcoin Core on a more powerful device to sync the whole blockchain to an external HDD. After that I made a copy and ran it in pruned mode to end up with the last 5GB of the blockchain. I copied the data to the SD card and ran it on the Rock Pi S. After verifying all blocks it runs very smoothly. Uptime at the moment is 15 days.
I guess you could run a full node as well if you put in a 512GB SDcard.
The Rock Pi S was sold out, but if anybody is interested, they started selling a new batch of Rock Pi S v1.2 from today.
Screenshot of resources being used
Bitcoin Core info
Around 1.5 GB is being transferred every day
---
Some links and a short How to for people that want to give it a try:
  1. This is the place where I bought the Rock Pi S.
  2. Here you find more information about Armbian on the Rock Pi S. Flash it to your SDCard. Follow these instructions.
  3. Disable ZRAM swap on Armbian. If you don't do this eventually Bitcoin Core will crash. nano /etc/default/armbian-zram-config ENABLED=false
  4. Enable SWAP on Armbian sudo fallocate -l 1G /swapfile sudo chmod 600 /swapfile sudo mkswap /swapfile sudo swapon /swapfile sudo swapon --show sudo cp /etc/fstab /etc/fstab.bak echo '/swapfile none swap sw 0 0' | sudo tee -a /etc/fstab
  5. Set up UFW Firewall sudo ufw default deny incoming sudo ufw default allow outgoing sudo ufw allow ssh # we want to allow ssh connections or else we won’t be able to login. sudo ufw allow 8333 # port 8333 is used for bitcoin nodes sudo ufw allow 9051 # port 9051 is used for tor sudo ufw logging on sudo ufw enable sudo ufw status
  6. Add user Satoshi so you don't run the Bitcoin Core as root sudo adduser satoshi --home /home/satoshi --disabled-login sudo passwd satoshi # change passwd sudo usermod -aG sudo satoshi # add user to sudo group
  7. Download (ARM64 version) and install Bitcoin Core Daemon
  8. Download and install TOR (optional). I followed two guides. This one and this one.
  9. Create a bitcoin.conf config file in the .bitcoin directory. Mine looks like this: daemon=1 prune=5000 dbcache=300 maxmempool=250 onlynet=onion proxy=127.0.0.1:9050 bind=127.0.0.1 #Add seed nodes seednode=wxvp2d4rspn7tqyu.onion seednode=bk5ejfe56xakvtkk.onion seednode=bpdlwholl7rnkrkw.onion seednode=hhiv5pnxenvbf4am.onion seednode=4iuf2zac6aq3ndrb.onion seednode=nkf5e6b7pl4jfd4a.onion seednode=xqzfakpeuvrobvpj.onion seednode=tsyvzsqwa2kkf6b2.onion #And/or add some nodes addnode=gyn2vguc35viks2b.onion addnode=kvd44sw7skb5folw.onion addnode=nkf5e6b7pl4jfd4a.onion addnode=yu7sezmixhmyljn4.onion addnode=3ffk7iumtx3cegbi.onion addnode=3nmbbakinewlgdln.onion addnode=4j77gihpokxu2kj4.onion addnode=5at7sq5nm76xijkd.onion addnode=77mx2jsxaoyesz2p.onion addnode=7g7j54btiaxhtsiy.onion ddnode=a6obdgzn67l7exu3.onion
  10. Start Bitcoin Daemon with the command bitcoind -listenonion
Please note that I'm not a professional. So if anything above is not 100% correct, let me know and I will change it, but this is my setup at the moment.
