    Rimbit full Nodes

    Yesterday I was reading about blockchain running full nodes on a Pi.

    I recall discussion of expenses for purchasing full nodes for Rimbit blockchain.

    Could we develop a similar Raspberry Rimbit blockchain full node.
    I can be loaded with the Rimbit wallet-qt running.
    It sounds like the Pi has the power and the connection speed is well below its threshold.

    This would provide another layer of stability those willing to run a full node on the Pi could receive a form of incentives for running it?
    ‚Äč
    Should the system require full nodes, would this be a worthwhile project?

    Most ISP's have services that run fast enough at 15 - 60 Mbps download, I would think the concern would be on data usage, I burn through 200Gb a month and should upgrade.
    https://bitcoin.org/en/bitcoin-core/...s/requirements shows what works. This one is good http://raspnode.com/faq.html#whatisnode It would be interesting if the Nodes could also be run by the community.

    From what I have read, the bottle neck appears to be poor SD cards, this can be overcome with a ssd , the residential internet speeds does not seem to be a huge issue.

    We do manage a number of servers that act as full nodes. The Pi Wallet is great for strengthening the network, but most residential internet has relatively slow upload speed. If we only ran the Rimbit network on Pi at peoples homes and offices, the network would be dreadfully slow. For this reason I have created these full nodes running in data centres around the world. As the network grows, it will actually be necessary to add more of those servers to ensure speed to the entire network.
