I’ve thought a lot about how to host Bitcoin services on the public internet without exposing my home IP address and without spending a fortune on a VPS with enough storage for a full Bitcoin node. I’ve come up with a solution that leverages wireguard and firewalld. The server doing the heavy lifting resides on my home network and proxies the internet traffic through an inexpensive VPS. I document the setup in this blog post:

Good episode. My opinion is duckduckgo searches are down because people that care about privacy also care about censorship. i do not need anyone censoring my searches for my own good.

Hey guys, I've been listening for a while since Chris mentioned the podcast on Linux Unplugged. With the high entry price to mining Bitcoin; it's not really feasible for someone at home to mine it. However, I do have some GPU's and was mining ETH to offload to LTC and BTC. Once it goes to ETH2 though it's no longer possible. What do you think about RVN and ERG as alternatives and just keeping them?

Stefan Molynuex has explained his beliefs in a short video. He sounds reasonable to me, focusing on phisophical ideas and morality. See for yourself:

I’m glad you got your lightening situation fixed. the second I heard you needed help, I figured it was time I grabbed Umbrel and helped setup a lightning channel for dear ol’ Bitcoin Dad. It’s been over a week and my poor Raspberry Pi seems to be asymptomatically approaching 35% synchronization of the Bitcoin chain. But hey, if it ever completes, I’ll see about that lightning channel!
