Hi All - I am new to Peercoin and cryptocurrency in general (apologies if this is in the wrong section). I was interested in Peercoin because of the innovation and being one of the first coins to employ P-o-S over P-o-W.
I have now got to the point where I’m ready to buy some PPC and get started with Minting. I originally planned to setup a Raspberry Pi running Linux as a node, which could run 24/7. Unfortunately this turned into a bit of a nightmare which I couldn’t get working. All the instructions on the website seem to be outdated and the repo directories are no longer the valid. I also found that any other tutorials elsewhere were also very outdated. This got me thinking… are people still using Peerunion? Is it still a thing to Mint PPC?
So is this the only option (other than peerbox on Jessie) at present for the Pi. Just seems a shame to have a device that seems perfect as a full node as it uses so little power that could sit there 24/7 amd not have a straight forward setup.
Maybe I’m looking at it in a simplistic way and there’s a good reason why…
use the nubit pi page as a guide and compile peercoin daemon. Should get running in an hour. i have done it many times since the SD card keeps getting trashed every several months, which I eventually might have solved by running the pi on a USB stick plugged into the pi.
