Hello; I have a Bitcoin node which is installed with curlhttps://bitnodes.io/install-full-node.sh| sh one command line. So my question is are there any potential security risks? I have only bitcoin node running on server and i have disabled root login on ssh, are there any security tips for me?
I am now running Bitcoin Unlimited - How to change over your Ubuntu node in 5 minutes
If you, like me, are not running Bitcoin Unlimited at least in part because you think it might be difficult to do so, let me assure you it is very easy. I was surprised to learn BU has an Ubuntu repository. The commands below worked for me to remove my previous Bitcoin client and replace it with BU. The blockchain and database is untouched so you will NOT need to redownload the blockchain. I was up and running again in minutes.
Your mileage may vary depending on your specific setup. Hope this helps someone! EDIT 1/17/18: The above instructions will configure the Bitcoin Core version of Bitcoin Unlimited. If you want Bitcoin Cash, you need to use the repository ppa:bitcoin-unlimited/bucash INSTEAD of ppa:bitcoin-unlimited/bu-ppa.
Make your own stakebox. Ultimate beginners guide how to compile any wallet on AARCH64 (Raspbery pi and other SBC)
I contemplated to wrote this for a long time, so it's finally time. As you know a lot of altcoins uses PoS (Proof-of-stake) way of "mining" coins. Which basically means, that you hold coins on your unlocked wallet and you are receiving stakes as a reward. This requires very little power and it can bring you a lot of rewards, at just 10W from the wall. So first I am using latest Raspbian on RPI4B 4GB in this example.Setting up Raspbian is not part of this process since it's very well documented. I recommend to change user from pi to something else due to security concerns and you can also do other stuff just search "security Raspberry PI" and you find a lot of articles, but this is not the focus of this guide. I know there are a lot of guides on the internet, but I am using like 5 sources, so it's compiled what other people wrote and some of my research. I am using AnyDesk insted of SSH or VNC server, because it works it's ligthweit and it just works. So after you see the gui of Raspbian, just launch terminal (CTRL + ALT + T) and do basic thing: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade Than press Y and let it run, after is finished, we need to prepare so dependency packages. Since most of the wallets using Berkeley DB 4.8 we need to obtain it. So in terminal wrote:
cd cd Downloads wget http://download.oracle.com/berkeley-db/db-4.8.30.NC.tar.gz tar -xzvf db-4.8.30.NC.tar.gz cd db-4.8.30.NC/build_unix ../dist/configure --enable-cxx make sudo make install
So wait unti it's finished and than you can delete files in Downloads folder in gui or use:
Watch the output folder which it creates, it's stated in the first two lines and copy then by highliting the text and CTRL+SHIFT+C copy it to your clipboard.
cd Streamies (this is that git created folder) ./autogen.sh ./configure CPPFLAGS="-I/uslocal/BerkeleyDB.4.8/include -O2" LDFLAGS="-L/uslocal/BerkeleyDB.4.8/lib" sudo make (this could take hours) sudo make install
And you are done, files is going to be in folder /uslocal/bin (DO NOT delete git created folder, because you are going to need it for faster compiling, when wallet get's and update.)
Now you can list files by:
And then you can copy/move them where ever you want by using:
sudo mv * [destination full path]
Let it run and go back to folder where you move those files.
sudo chmod +x streamies-qt (since we want to run wallet)
In most cases compiled files are going to in format of "shared library" so we need to create script to run it. Open up a text editor from gui or through nano. And paste this to that file:
And save it as a sh file, for example run.sh. Then we need to make it runnable so:
sudo chmod +x run.sh
Now to run it, it's just:
And here we are glorious GUI wallet appears and you are done, you can paste blockchain, wallet.dat from other sources, so this migration is pretty easy and you, if you have it on for exaple flash disk. So this is basic how to compile QT wallets on AARCH64. I am running 7 wallets, 2 of those are Masternodes and RPI 4B 4GB would handle way more, I am at best on half of my RAM. Some wallets need more package, but it's not much of and issue, since compiling stops and you just copy paste nape which is missing put it in the google and add "apt-get" after the name of package and you are going to see, what is the name of the packages so it can be retreived from package assinstant aka apt-get. So basically:
sudo apt-get install [package name]
Then press y and again wrote:
This process is going to continue where it was left off, so nothing is going to run from beginning. Updating wallets is basically exactly same, just repeat steps from "git clone" and after that proceed as it was written above. So I hope this helps some of you, to use this at home and not on some VPS, if you are anxious as me, to host my wallets on remote server.

How to run Bitcoin Core 0.20.0 on Ubuntu Server 20.04 LTS using a Raspberry Pi 4 (or Virtual Machine)
I was helping someone on twitter with this so I figured I'd share the information here as well so that other people would have an easier time than I did. I'm going to explain how to do this setup on a Raspberry Pi, but note that this should work on a VM as well. You can also set up and run the node headless this way, but I will be explaining how to set up the node using a monitor that you can then later disconnect and access remotely once everything is setup. Hardware: -Raspberry Pi 4 (2GB RAM minimum) preferably 4GB RAM -Raspberry Pi 4 Heatsinks -Raspberry Pi 4 case -Micro HDMI cable -USB-C power cable and wall adapter -Monitor -Keyboard and mouse -Ethernet cable (Optional) -16GB or larger microSD card -500GB or larger external hard drive (SSD or portable) Node Requirements: -50 KBps upload internet speeds (Most people should have this) -Unlimited or high data cap internet download/upload service -6 hours or longer per day dedicated run time Okay, once you have the hardware its time to get started! The first thing you'll need to do is install the Raspberry Pi imager, this is how we're going to install Ubuntu onto our Raspberry Pi. After your download and install finishes, open the imager.
Click the "choose OS" box and from the list select Ubuntu, then select Ubuntu Server 20.04 LTS (Raspberry Pi 2/3/4).
Insert your microSD card to your computer directly or via a USB converter. Click "choose SD card" and select your inserted microSD card.
Click "Write" and wait for the imager to finish flashing the OS onto your card
When it is done, remove the SD card and reinsert it to access the files installed. You can choose the overclock the Raspberry Pi by editing the config file. To connect to the Raspberry Pi remotely, you'll need to create an SSH file. If you're on windows this is pretty easy. In the File Explorer, highlight the address bar at the top, erase the text and type cmd, press enter and the Command Prompt will pop up. Type the following: echo\ssh This will create an SSH file in your SD directory so that you can remote access the Rasberry Pi later. Now you can go ahead and eject the SD card from your computer. Now we can set up the Raspberry Pi Go ahead and connect all your peripherals to your Raspberry Pi, insert the microSD, and connect it to power to turn it on. Give it a moment to boot up, then when prompted enter "ubuntu" for the password. It will make you change the password. Afterward, it will print a bunch of information to the screen, write down the IPv4 address, this is the IP address you'll use to remote access the Raspberry Pi. Now, at any time you can remote access your Raspberry Pi by entering a terminal on another PC in your network and typing: ssh [email protected](your IP address) The next step is to install a desktop. There are plenty to choose from so feel free to use a different one than what I use, you can also choose to ignore this and to just work from in the terminal from this point forward. You need to update all the repositories so type: (Note you'll either have to be connected by ethernet orhave edited the network-config fileto setup your wifi in advance) sudo apt-get update Once it's done updating type the following to upgrade your system: sudo apt-get upgrade Now that you're up-to-date, you can install the desktop using the command: sudo apt-get install ubuntu-gnome-desktop This will take a while to download and install so just sit back and let it do its thing. Once it's done downloading, restart your Raspberry Pi and log in with the password you changed earlier. Your first boot may take a while so just be patient, don't freak out if you see a single purple square in the center of the screen while it's loading. You should now have the Ubuntu desktop ready to go and now it's on to installing Bitcoin Core! Installing Bitcoin Core 0.20.0 Since we're running Ubuntu Server 20.04 LTS, it should come preinstalled with the Snap Store. This makes installing apps very easy and works similar to pip install in Python. Simply open your terminal and type: sudo snap install bitcoin-core This will install Bitcoin Core into your Snap folder and will add the application to your system. Unfortunately, there are still a few steps left before we can begin downloading the blockchain. By default, Bitcoin Core doesn't have the removable-media Plug connected to the Socket. You can view this by typing: snap connections bitcoin-core This means when you try installing everything onto your external hard drive, Bitcoin Core won't be able to identify it or write to it even when passed the directory path. To fix this first locate your Snap folder, make a copy of the bitcoin-core folder inside, and paste it into your external drive. NOTE: You must make a copy, you can't just move the snap file to the external drive. Now, you can connect the removable-media Plug to the Socket by typing: sudo snap connect bitcoin-core:removable-media :removable-media This gives you the read/write permissions necessary to access the /media path. Finally, you can now launch Bitcoin Core and select "use a custom directory path" when prompted. Highlight the current directory path and replace it with the path to your external hard drive, it should look something like this: /media/(external drive)/bitcoin-core/common/.bitcoin This is why we had to make a copy of the bitcoin-core folder to the external drive earlier, the Bitcoin Core application will create the new data directory through ".bitcoin". Hit "Okay" and the application will begin synchronizing with the network! Once the synchronization is finished your very own node will be up and running! EDIT: (08/01/2020) Bitcoin Core 0.20.01 has been released, I will update the tutorial soon with how to run the latest release.
Asking about copyright of these symbols, phrases, fonts etc.
I'd like to submit a design for clothing and accessories. The company makes something unique and really cool, I have been their customer for about 2 years and I'd like to be one of the artists. My design is about Bitcoin. It will feature candlesticks, the Bitcoin logo, the phrase "Buy the dip" and the font used by Bitcoin (Ubuntu Font Family). As for the candlesticks, I will not use a screenshot from TradingView or some exchange, I will personally make them in Photoshop. I posted this on the Bitcoin subreddit, but they recommended to make a post here too. I should mention that Bitcoin is an open source project, not a company, nobody owns it and the logo is open to the public. I believe I can use all of these for my design, but I want to be sure. Is there any website where I can search for copyrights and trademarks associated with these symbols/logos? If anyone knows, are any of these copyrighted? Can I be sued for the commercial use of them? I have seen t-shirts and other stuff with the Bitcoin logo and "Buy the dip" everywhere, have these guys acquired rights to produce and sell these products? I live in Albania (Europe) and the company I will submit my design to is American (offices in Los Angeles) This is an excerpt from their rules about designs: Designs: You are responsible for any designs you post. Please make sure that you have a strong understanding of copyright law. Any designs submitted using images that you don’t own commercial rights to use are your responsibility.

Asking about copyright of logos, symbols, phrases, fonts?
I first posted this on /Bitcoin, but didn't get any valuable help. One of the two replies recommended reposting this on /legaladvice, but got no answer there at all.

[Tutorial] Build and run your own Bitcoin node on Ubuntu 19.10
I am finally doing my part and running my own bitcoin node in a small home server. Most guides I found online were either incomplete, outdated, or explained only how to run bitcoin-qt (graphical interface). So I built a minimalistic guide with the starting point of Ubuntu 19.10 to run the latest Bitcoin core release (v0.19.0.1) as of today. If you have an old laptop (raspberry pi, NUC, etc even better) a reliable internet connection, and ~ 500Gb of HDD (USB external drive are just fine), you should consider running a node. It's fun, you will deepen your computer knowledge, and you will be supporting the network.
