How To: Make Your Own Private Bitcoin Node to Anonymize Transactions over Tor
Chances are you’ve heard of Bitcoin, the anonymous and secure cryptocurrency which has made waves over many years. One of the main issues I see is that people are trusting others to handle their transactions.
...for this tutorial I am merging the ideas from pinode, along with the Thundroid tutorial, and adding some of my own twists and spins. I chose an Odroid HomeCloud 2 as it allows for a native SATA hard drive, and the HC2 variant allows for 3.5″ disks where as the HC1 allows for 2.5″ disks.
Odroid HomeCloud 2 (Use the HomeCloud 1 if wanting 2.5″ disks instead)
1TB or larger NAS Hard Drive e.g. Seagate Iron Wolf 3.5″ 1TB HDD (will explain why specifically a NAS drive)
12 Volt/2 Amp power brick If using the Home Cloud 2 model along with the cord that is sold separate
5 Volt/ 4 Amp power brick if using the Home Cloud 1 model. I recommend checking the hard drive power consumption rate as you may have to jump for the 5 Volt/ 6 Amp brick and cord
