Bitcoin needs a “live” OS for nodes with an encrypted volume for blk data so that a node can be easily booted and synced with the network without the possibility of an attacker making permanent changes.

I think down the road, we may see nation state attacks on bitcoin nodes, and it would be an extremely valuable resource to have a live linux OS where it is impossible to make changes to its boot structure. This would be very important to censorship resistance.

A talented developer that could take the code base of the already available hardened live linux distributions and spin it off as a bitcoin node client version would be tits mcgee!

Just a random shower thought. Hope you guys like it.
