enthusiasts, rejoice! Now, anyone can run a full node on their Android devices.
One of the core propositions of Bitcoin (BTC) is its decentralized nature. In order to succeed in its quest to become a global store of value and viable form of non-sovereign currency, the network has to provably remain decentralized and autonomous.
From the early adopters to the late comers, a lot of Bitcoin proponents will consistently advocate for as many peers as possible to run a full node. This keeps the network as decentralized as possible and minimizes the possibility of an attack by malicious actors.
In the spirit of a decentralized community, continued development and contributions from developers all around the globe mean running a Bitcoin node is becoming easier to set up and manage.
Thanks to ABCore, which is being developed by Lawrence Nahum, anyone with an Android device is now able to run their own Bitcoin node.
For those that don't know what ABCore is, it's a weekend project from @LarryBitcoin that lets you run a #Bitcoin full node on your Android device. Yes, full node. #ThisGuyShips 💯 https://t.co/jxcUGo365C
