What operating system are you using on your computer?

See this link: https://bitcoin.org/en/full-node
It covers most operating systems. If you need more specific help, then post here with your question (or send me a pm for direct help)

Just run your Bitcoin Core wallet and Make sure to open TCP port 8333 if they aren't open and leave the wallet opened 24/7 and that's it .

Not ideal for a headless server or other advanced configurations. It places a dependency on QT and such.

Yes it is that simple and after doing that , you should check this website : https://getaddr.bitnodes.io/ and click "Check node" you will find your IP + the port that I asked you to open and just click the button . If you are not good they should tell you that it's not Reachable otherwise you are fine to go .

not sure  what that means to be honest  Huh

He's asking if he'll get paid in any way for maintaining it.

Then my answer is NO.  You won't get paid with anyway when you run a Bitcoin full node .
You will simply be helping the Bitcoin network and making it secure

You won't get paid, but getaddr.bitnodes.io has an incentives program where every week one node that verifies with them can win some Bitcoin from them. It is basically the lottery and it doesn't hurt to enter it if you plan on running a node 24/7. Otherwise, don't expect any payment at all from anyone for running a full node. The incentives program can be found here: https://getaddr.bitnodes.io/nodes/incentive/

I personnally think that running a full node should have some compensation, but if not I suppose there is some logic behind it... Well at least getaddr.bitnodes.io incentivizes poeple to have a full node running! I'll try this one for sure.

It is only around $10 which is quite low and it wouldn't allow people to make a profit if they don't have a old unused raspbberry pi. It is important to note that it is a lottery and you have very low chances to get the Bitcoin. The eligibility is largely dependent on the amount of users on the same ISP as  you, latency and uptime.

yes for sure.

running full node consumes lot of CPU/RAM/network/space and disk I/O resources and there is literally no benefit except something called "good feeling". similar projects (tor), sending at least t-shirt for running tor relay (and consumes significantly less resources).

I want to contribute to network again (because electricity cost to much here, I can't afford to mine anymore), but without any kind of motivation, I don't see any reason (and obviously, I'm not alone)..meeh

i run both Tor nodes and Bitcoin nodes aswell as other nodes to this date iv not got a single tip for running my bitcoin nodes but they sit there on the back end of the server and dont cause to much trouble

I run one I did not bother joining the lottery end for a shot at ten bucks.

But the same pc running the node runs my sidehack usb sticks.

I built the pc with leftover parts from my gpu mining days.

it has 8gb ram uses an intel 2500t cpu and a samsung 250 gb ssd.

it costs 31 watts to run the node and since it is far more powerful then a rasp pi it runs the usb sticks very easily.

my power cost is 45 watts for a node and 2 usb sticks giving me a total of 27.5 gh mining power.

I have  a few more sticks on order.  my goal is 130 gh with 10 sticks and the node.  maybe use 100 watts of power.

Please support sidehack with his new miner project Send to : 1BURGERAXHH6Yi6LRybRJK7ybEm5m5HwTr
I mine alt coins with https://simplemining.net I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.
