Seeing as the Blockchain has almost doubled in size over the last year, would anyone be interested in buying a blockchain usb?

The cost would be something like $23 shipped to anywhere in the world.
SO wait I am trying to understand what you are selling, it is flashdrives with just the block data correct? Would have to be 64gb minimum flashdrive, why is the cost so high though?

Flash Drives with block data would be correct.

Probably would have to explain costs. Just because worldwide shipping is roughly $10 in my experience for a small coin (in a padded envelope). I bet I could quote something cheaper to the US. Also $13 for the flash drive because that's what I picked a couple up for.

US shipping would be like $15-16 or something.

Edit: Possibly a plain envelope would work for US shipping, making is roughly 13.50.

I know this isn't an original idea (forgot the user that had this idea before), but just trying to help some people out.


@Butterzone.
Thanks, Probably should have started with that.

It is useful as some people I know still have very low bandwidth limits and usage limits and they would like a full client set up. I myself have resorted to downloading the blockchain for them to set up on their PCs.

You could target that sector of people just not sure how you would do it

It was a San disk 2.0 USB. I only grabbed those because of cyber Monday sales. Cheap and a known brand

Good choice Wink

I have a question, can I actually run a Bitcoin Core on this USB? Without copying the files to my computer.

Short term I believe so. I have bootable USBs with Kali linux and centOS.

Long term the blockchain will most likely be double the size as of today. It almost is doubling every year. So don't be surprised if next December we are at 100GB+

Good luck on the sale. I tried this awhile back but the biggest issue was proving the drives were virus/malware free. Never did sell any but you may have better luck.

Thanks, I think I read your thread and got the idea from you.

I cleared off sandisk encrypt software, and just started with an empty USB.

This would be of some concern to me also.  But good luck in your sales.

So I run a node. The node has the blockchain. I just copy the blockchain from my computer to the USB and you just copy and paste it into your files on your computer. I believe you can also check the integrity of the blocks with a command in bitcoinqt.
