Running BitcoinCore 0.10 On A Raspberry Pi 2# iluvpi2 #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi


Running BitcoinCore 0.10 on a Raspberry Pi2. via bit-post

– A RaspberryPi (2). (I will be using a Rpi2)
– A good power supply.
(I can’t stress this enough: for the Rpi2 use proper cables and at least a 2A PSU)
– Storage!
Considering the size of the blockchain at moment of writing being around 35GB. We need to use a 64GB+ sdcard, or an external hard drive/usb stick + a small microSD card. (I will be using a 250 GB external HDD, with an 8gb microSD card).
– A raspbian image (available here)
optional but highly recommended:
– The blockchain.

Preparing the SDcard:

Now that we have downloaded the raspbian image, we need to write it to the microSD card, I recommend doing this on a Windows machine with Win32DiskImager, because it is the easiest way to image an existing SDcard, as well as writing an image to it, without the use of terminal/command line.
Instructions for Mac and Linux can be found here.
