You can now run full Bitcoin nodes on the most powerful Raspberry Pi so far

Raspberry Pi Featured 25 June

Raspberry Pi has attracted the attention of Bitcoin enthusiasts, as it provides a cheap option for running full Bitcoin nodes. The latest release of the Raspberry Pi Foundation announced on 23 June, is the most powerful single-board computer so far and is now available on sale for around thirty-five dollars ($35).

The ability to run personal full Bitcoin nodes appeals to a lot of the Bitcoin community. That’s understandable, as users can verify their cryptocurrency transactions, without having to use third-party node providers. Such independence is a significant benefit for traders who complete many transactions daily.

The new Raspberry Pi (fourth generation) is a significant improvement in terms of both hardware and software. The single-board computer comes in three different RAM options and has a USB C power supply port, instead of the traditional micro USB. You can learn more details about the hardware and configuration of the model in this helpful tweet posted on the official Raspberry Pi page:

Other than the hardware updates, the Raspberry Pi 4 comes with a significantly improved software as well. To accomodate all hardware improvements, the Foundation had to come up with matching software. The new Raspbian software is based on Debian 10 and provides a bunch of background upgrades, as well as an:

extensively modernised user interface

The popularity of cheap and effective Bitcoin node hardware is on the rise, as the currency is back on a gaining streak. Devices like the Raspberry Pi are looking to make transaction authorisation and node support more accessible and cheaper, which is needed more than ever, as Bitcoin continues to rise in value, thus attracting more interested parties.
