30 gedachten over “Why & How to Run a Bitcoin/Lightning Node w/ MyNode”

  1. Could I have my own webapp hostet on the same raspi, which accepts payments but also sends payments to users?

  2. important to note that if your node goes offline for the lightning network you can essentially lose all your money! lightning network does not have the same security as bitcoin. you address on bitcoin is safe if your node dies, but not your lightning network.

  3. having a problem, getting stuck on drive formatting ive had it up for 10+ hours and it wont budge. Any recommendations? Thanks!

  4. I'm having a lot of trouble setting up https on MyNode. No matter what settings I change it always says "not secure" with a strike through https. Is anyone else having this issue?

  5. Awesome video! I am interested in getting set up to contribute to the lightning network. Do you offer any type of 1 on 1 consultation?
