  • Tor vs. my ip?
    "Best" is subjective, it depends on whether you prefer high-level or low-level tools. I use RaspiBolt, which is what RaspiBlitz is based on, because I prefer the less pre-packaged feel and it taught me more about my system.

  • Is there any open source banking software?
    Yes, Bitcoin with the Lightning Network is definitely the answer to that, as you can run your own "bank" completely with open source on your own. There are some very nice "be your own bank" projects like Raspiblitz: https://github.com/rootzoll/raspiblitz Or Raspibolt if you want to setup everything yourself with documentation: https://stadicus.github.io/RaspiBolt/

  • EASIEST way to set up a node?
    reddit.com/r/Bitcoin | 2021-03-28
    If you want to build your own, the two go-to projects are raspibolt and is derivative raspiblitz. Both open source, and once you get them up and running, you really will know most things to know about running your own bitcoin node forever.

    Basically anything that can run a Bitcoin Core node and stay online 24/7. A Raspberry Pi is sufficient, you can follow the guide here (see also the "Joinmarket" section in the "Bonus" part). You'll also find some basic commands in it (how to start the yield generator etc). https://stadicus.github.io/RaspiBolt/
  • Any way to make money hosting a node?
    I recommend trying RaspiBolt. You'll be running a full Bitcoin node, so you'll want at least a 1TB drive to be comfortable.
