what is the cheapest computer to run SV
What is the cheapest desktop I can buy to run SV node at home and have it handle the biggest blocks today?
A link would be appreciated
I have been asked this question a number of times and haven’t found an adequate answer.
Whenever the fastest antelopes escape and the slowest are eaten, it becomes more and more difficult for future lions to catch the fast antelopes, so that only the fastest lions can survive and reproduce. This leads to ever faster lions and antelopes. So the question is, who will reach the speed of light first? Lion or antelope?
Now, this will obviously require some speculation, but why not. There are many exciting Bitcoin SV applications being released practically at a daily basis, but they are arguably mostly used by the (still small in grand scheme of things) BSV community.
I predict that at some point we’ll see one/some of those applications gain attention of the general public and take off - probably dragging the entire ecosystem with them.
If you could bet which (or what kind of) app that will be, what would you bet on?
I noticed that even with
getrawtransaction RPC call still returns transactions. I assume that without the full index it will still return transactions that node software needs for other reasons (wallet transactions, UTXOs, …). But what are those cases? Which types of transactions are available even without the full transaction index? And what happens if I request a transaction that is not available?
