I'm running my own full node now using Umbrel

I've been Bitcoin'ing since 2013 and finally decided to start running my own full node. I chose RaspberryPI + Umbrel for a good balance of cost, dedicated hardware, and small form factor. The setup was ridiculously easy too. Gear:

  • RaspberryPi 4 8GB
  • Agron 1 case with M.2 SSD expansion (everything in one box + temp controlled active cooling)
  • WD Blue 1TB NAND SSD
  • 32GB Sandisk SD Card (only 16GB required)
  • Umbrel

As well as normal node stuff like validating the network, I intend to use it as an intermediate point for any large transactions or transactions involving exchanges to/from my offline wallet for additional privacy. This will be via the Dojo server and Samourai wallet running on the node. Example transaction: Exchange > Samourai wallet > Whirlpool (optional) > offline wallet.
