[HELP] I would like to build a Rpi Bitcoin price ticker. Could use your folks help!
So I have a Rpi model B board that I have been sitting on now for almost a year and haven't really used. Now that I am active in buying BTC I would like to use the pi as a live price ticker. I know there are a few tutorials/demonstrations online but I would like to build this thing on a budget and need some help starting. What I need from you folks is help with a product list of components that I should get (usb hub if needed, screen, downloads, etc.). I have honestly considered posting in /Jobs4Bitcoins and contracting someone to do it, but that's no fun. I do run linux on one of my main desktops, but if anyone has help to make this process as easy as possible I would appreciate it. Thanks

Batch script to create pruned block data from full block data
TLDR; Produce a pruned block directory from a full block directory without copying any extra block data I have a full node, but at times I want to run in a VM or on a RPi or something. Normally I have to clone my whole 300 GB block directory, enable pruning, then point bitcoin-qt.exe to the clone to finally arrive at a small 4 GB datadir. I found it frustrating that I was doing this 295 GB of pointless copy operations since once I enable pruning, the old blocks are discarded. I was also discouraged at the fact that .\Bitcoin\testnet3\blocks\blk00186.dat is different (by checksum) in a pruned and non-pruned directory. So I finally came up with an answer. Basically, I copy over the latest few blk*.dat and rev*.dat files, then just make empty copies of the other blk*.dat and rev*.dat files. Then once bitcoin-qt.exe launches, it discards the empty files and rewrites the few files it needs. For Windows, it looks something like this: set /a "sum=0" for /f %%I in ('dir /s /b /o:-n %full_blk%\blk*.dat') do ( set size=%%~zI set blkdat=%%~nxI set revdat=!blkdat:blk=rev! if !sum! GTR !pruned_mb! ( echo.> %pruned_blk%\!blkdat! echo.> %pruned_blk%\!revdat! ) else ( copy %full_blk%\!blkdat! %pruned_blk%\!blkdat! copy %full_blk%\!revdat! %pruned_blk%\!revdat! ) set /a "sum=!sum! -1 + !size!/(1024*1024)" ) I can stamp out a pruned blocks directory from my full blocks directory in seconds. Much easier... well for me. Here's the source, but no guarantees. Just food for thought.
Trying to set up RPi to mine bitcoin using Block Erupters, but nothing seems to be working correctly
Hey guys, so I'm trying to use my RPi (B+ model) to set up a rudimentary bitcoin mining rig, but nothing seems to work correctly. I've tried using cgminer on Raspbian Jessie, but cgminer seems to refuse to use the miner. Nothing shows up when I check my hash rate on Slushpool's website, the current pool I'm using. I have another microSD that I set up with minepeon, but every time I try to plug in my Block erupter (which is a dualminer Litecoin/Bitcoin miner), it keeps telling me that I don't have permissions to access the USB port that they are plugged into. I've googled various things and I keep getting closer to it actually working, but it still isn't showing any hash rate. Anyone tried something similar and had problems? tl;dr: Using RPi B+ to mine via ASIC block erupters, both with Raspbian Jessie and cgminer, and with minepeon, neither work correctly. Help?
No online link yet, but here is their main site. In the August issue of Bitcoin magazine, RPI is mentioned as having possibly the highest adoption rate of bitcoin technology for any college in the entire world. Is there really a community of bitcoiners here at RPI? Want to meet up? Anyone have a BFL Single to show off?
I'm not talking about this starter kit; rather, I'm talking about laying the groundwork for some light Bitcoin mining using a RPi Model B. Block erupters aside, I wanted to buy a Pi and some other things for around $30 that has:
A USB hub for the erupters
A USB fan for cooling said eruptors
Class 10 SD card for holding mining software
I don't know a whole lot about RPi or BTC, but I think that this list is a good one. Short post shorter, I need your help on deciding what to buy. When the stuff comes in doesn't really matter. Just tell me what I could add, change, or remove from the list to make it better for mining. Thanks!
I use the Electrum interface, so I'm thinking bitcoin core + electrum personal server. 1) Any reasons why soemone should use raspiBlitz or myNode (or any other options) instead of bitocin core? 2) Should pruning and/or blocks only be used? Are there any benefits of not using them? 3) Should I use Tor? I think that would mean setting up a .onion site. I'm not sure how to do that but hopefully it's in Chris Beecher's guide.
Hi community, I want to switch my setup from a 1TB HDD to a 480GB SSD to increase speed and remove moving parts from the system. Could you please give me some insights if the way I plan to do it would work? Quicksync already finished, the Quicksync file has been extracted and the blockchain is syncing the blocks that were not included in the Quicksync file.What I now want to do is:
Disable Quicksync in the settings. That would delete the Quicksync file
Shut the Raspberry Pi4 down
clone the HDD content to the empty SSD via OSX
Connect the SSD to the Raspberry Pi4 and start the RPI back up
A sample of the blockchain and the transactions are shown for you to understand the concept clearly.Then you will see what a bitcoin wallet is and how to get a bitcoin wallet for yourself. You'll then learn about how to setup an account for bitcoin mining and synchronization of a bitcoin wallet to this mining account. RPi 3 flashed with Raspbian stretch OS (full version, not the lite version) Gekkoscience compac USB ASIC Bitcoin core wallet SlushPool pooled mining account BFGminer USB Hub. I've already linked the Bitcoin core wallet to the slushpool account and also have installed the BFGminer onto the RPi. With Your own RaspiBlitz Bitcoin Lightning Full Node you can route payments through the Bitcoin Lightning Network and get Bitcoins as reward. Installation of the Bitcoin full node software. Now the RPI reboots on it’s hard drive, the micro SD-card is saved from numerous write-activities, we’re now ready for the bitcoin full node software.Initially I’ve found this article which helped me very well. As several things have been arranged we continue with other steps needed. About Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
