For those interested. A team active on Telegram has gotten solarcoin up and running raspberrypi which is very cool.  

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raspberry_Pi   That means a solarcoin node for $35 that could be posting live solar production data and or earning interest while maintaining the chain with POST is quite cool.   Obviously 1gb storage limitation is an issue so either enhanced storage or a version using checkpoints might be considered as solutions for full node.

well done to the team of community members.  We are waiting for a summary and write up from Luke and team here is what is up on steem:  https://steemit.com/cryptocurrency/@jza/build-a-headless-solarcoin-node-on-raspberry-pi

We solved the storage issue because the Pi's have multiple USB slots where we store the synced blockchain. It is good practice according to ROKOS staking rules to store your blockchain on removable USB keys rather than on the SD card that has the OS running on it. So these USB keys now have storage over 64GB. Currently the SLR blockchain is around 800MB to 1GB and growing steadily.

Thanks,

Bitcoin's blockchain is over 60 GB now, and it took this long with heavy use. Though you can plug USB hard drives into the pi also, and I'm assuming you can set up a network disk as well? Something I've been considering trying.

actually BTC is over 90GB https://blockchain.info/charts/blocks-size

Solarcoin (§ SLR) are like airmiles. Each 1 Mhw generated gets you §1 free. Solarcoins can purchase what others will trade: USD,BTC, Soy candles..etc.

We are considering making a repository that can mirror the latest bootstraps. OKToshi also has some practical ideas on the ROKOS channel in Bitcointalk threads.

Just some more info on the Raspberry Pis, Im now using my Pi2 as my fulltime staking machine and have all of my SLR on it.  So I hope shortly to be able to confirm a staked block.  I have done a bunch of transactions without issues.

My Pi seems more reliable at syncing with the block-chain than my windows machines Smiley

this is the best news. I have a Pi3b on chain as well. Now, it is about 50% solar powered, because we are in December here in Tokyo. But when I take it to the Emirates I will try to get it more solar powered.

Even on the very worst of winter days here in Britain, my 4kWp rooftop system should produce enough to run my Pi2  Smiley  No batteries so the night time will be on grid power.  I can pretend my exported energy is shipped back to me!

PI is looking after chinese markets. Here in my place no one buys 3w pocket knots, no one wants to charge them every 10 minutes.

Lykke announcement. We are the first coin Lykke has listed.  https://solarcoin.org/en/lykke-integrates-solarcoin-into-global-marketplace/

this also makes SolarCoin one of the few coins that can be traded from an i-phone.  Lykke is a swiss registered exchange and has high KYC/AML standards relative to other exchanges.
