bitnodes has pre-fab'd full nodes as well:
https://getaddr.bitnodes.io/hardware/

they also offer a $10 a week lottery to pay people for running nodes.

Way too expensive for such a device though Smiley plus 22$ shipping, and customs...no thanks Smiley

yes, price is problem - 190$ without customs will be at least 215$ customs included and for this, you can almost buy much better device (Intel NUC). anyway, it is really sexy;)

The unit is nice but costs too much and only has a 64gb sd card.  it will fill up in a year or less you would then need a card like this

I don't know what country the op is in but a small pc is better.

I'm dusting off my Raspberry Pi to run my Avalon 3 USB Erupter.

If my evil plan works, I'll run a full bitcoin-xt node (with no active wallets) as well as cgminer.  Then I will run MultiBit or BitcoinJ as parital-nodes running off of a Zulu OpenJDK build on my PC's.  I may run partial nodes on my android and other devices in the house.  All the partial nodes will trust only my RasPi full node and rely on it for all contact with the outside world.

I'll report the bugs in my plan as it unfolds... slowly....

Use an external storage for the blockchain data. This will also help with wear on your main SD card. Make a backup card of that main SD card right away. If it fails (which didn't happen to me on my RPi node so far) it's easy to get back online, just plug in the new card.

This sounds really fun.  I'm listening for the unfolds part.  I've got a pi and and a usb miner I was thinking about running off of it too so I'm all ears.  I need to get a backup SD first tho.

running a node on a rasp pi is really not a good idea.

you need to attach  large storage and rasp pi have no real computing power.


this is much better a 100% node machine  yeah it pulls 25 watts not 15 but it will last.

http://outlet.lenovo.com/outlet_us/itemdetails/57RF0550/445


if you insist on a really tiny machine use  an intel nuc .

or better yet get this below

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883218038&cm_re=zotac_zbox_nano-_-83-218-038-_-Product

good point but I have a raspberry pi 512mb B+ ...as a spare for the Titan(s) should one of the pi's go...so was thinking I could use that  for a LITECOIN node
in that it PROBABLY would have enough pop for that network (I also have the new 1gb raspberry pi as well ...if it needed to be fluffed up for the litecoin node)

(boys and toys .sigh)

as to a bitcoin node I supposedly have a bitseed v2 node coming 1st week of July or so ... that part of me giving back to the bitcoin network is more or less set


anyway my raspberry pi for such endeavors are here and thus looking like a litecoin node for MAYBE use by the 512mb one or at worse the newer 1gb version

but your solution was more elegant ...wish I'd have seen it before getting the 1gb pi (still only 42 buck for such ..I could use it for other things)

but will try the Litecoin node on a Pi first..if that don't work will consider your more elegant option in the link you posted here

(then sit around and look at the 512mb raspberry pi on the shelf in 'emergency product mode' in case a pi goes bad on the titan as its purchase justification some more) Smiley

and/or figure our some other way to play with the 2nd raspberry pi I guess So many pi's so little time

frigging impulse buying is dangerous Smiley

(hey keeps me off the streets I guess..out of traffic and good for the public order I guess)

add ram and an ssd   
1) A old HDD or a cheap HDD would do. 1TB is relatively cheap at current price.
2) That PC is not designed for heavy workloads and it would be a waste to buy it since you can't replace most of the parts and it only have 1 year warranty.
3) There are no hard drives, no memory, no os and it cost $128. It would be a much better idea to get raspberry pi and then a HDD to go with it.

Ack! conflicts with my previous view of his link Ack!

anyway my issue is a side issue I SHOULD be able to get a frigging Litecoin node up on a raspberry pi ..at least the NEW one ..as to those who want to do so
on the newest raspberry pi 1gb I'd think at 6x faster then the previous pi 512mb this is do'able right?

and the other reason got the pi for my node project is space .wanted something small and hell i'm just gonna hang it on a wall .the bitseed v2 node too when it
comes for that matter as well

but again ..i may just have to put the 512mb back into the titan part *just in case* box and use the 1gb newer 42 buck with shipping raspberry pi I impulse bought
for other things ..if my plans don't work out for the litecoin node

(sorry running 2 bitcoin nodes is silly in that I should give back with a LTC node too..I have scrypt machines)

Is the CHIP computer powerful enough to run a full node? It seems like a neat little device.

 well found this made another thread on it here


https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1107660.msg11778748#msg11778748

to recap complete instructions for bitcoin or litecoin node on raspberry pi 2 1gb version (newest one)

have not tried it but looking good hopefully this helps most of use yank the raspberry pi out of the closet and do a btc or ltc node now

here is from my thread post revamped here ...it is 11 pages of instructions so hopefully this helps you all

quote from other thread here

 Just a link to instructions on a BUILD IT YOURSELF .... how to run either a BTC or LTC node on your raspberry pi 2 1gb version (newest)
for those wanting more blinking lights in the basement or are missing the old home miner equipment and desire
to contribute to the decentralization of either network.

Anyway here is the links

http://raspnode.com/about.html   Main Page

http://raspnode.com/diyBitcoin.html  DIY Bitcoin Node Page

http://raspnode.com/diyLitecoin.html DIY Litecoin Node Page


anyway looks pretty good I'll try to get on this and let you know how it works out

I could not get bitcoin core to compile in the RasPi2-1GB version but did compile fine on the B+512MB version.

I would love to know how to get it to compile without errors on the RasPi2-1GB version.

Right now running the mining op with CGMiner. Everyone recommended to use bitcoin core etc...but as I said could not get it to compile correctly.

Im wandering how this foundation not accept mastercard as payment method? o.O
aliexpress.com accept even visa electron.
 I ask if they build own version full node or takes B1 sale on they portal Smiley (Money back guarantee etc)
 Undecided RJ-45 (registered jack 45) is best connection type B1 in my opinion wifi mobile interface dosent carry much data and there maybe connection problems with wifi.

10 dollars is lot of one week. Full node dosent spend much electricity.

you might try here (i don't program it i just a guess)

http://bitcoin.stackexchange.com/

or get a hold of the author of the instructions links on the first page

surprised you got the bitcoin node to work on the 512mb version figured I'd only get that to work on the 1gb pi as a bitcoin node and probably the 512mb ver would work for
a litecoin node (my plan have both)

anyway all I have ... let us know here how it works out

The lottery is totally random. There is a slight chance that a node can get it but the chance is very low. Currently, there is 174 eligible node. If you were to run a node now, you would be having a slightly more than 0.5% chance of getting the $10. This is not a good way to earn anything and it is just a way to compensate a small portion of their cost. The premade node is much more advanced than raspberry pi 2 which cost $35. However, if you're just running a full node and doing nothing else, raspberry pi 2 would be quite enough for <80 connections.
