PSA: No India hasn't banned Bitcoin — but it's still talking tough on crypto

On Thursday a budget speech by finance minister Arun Jaitley generated a tsunami of 'the Bitcoin party is over in India' headlines, adding to downward pressures on the cryptocurrency.

I’m in negative, but I still spent money to set up my first raspberry pi full node

Instructions are pretty straight forward but some of the command lines didn't really work for me so I had to research quite a bit to get it working.

I haven't made any profit from btc investment yet, and I know a lot of people are in negative, especially if you got in last December. However, I really believe in this technology and I just wanted to be a part of this grand experiment.

Total cost for setting up a full node was about $ 70 USD, so it isn't too much. I have a pretty decent internet connection, and after 7 hours, I have downloaded about 30gb worth of blocks.

It was pretty fun setting this up, and I encourage everyone to participate! I hope I am contributing to keeping Bitcoin decentralised.

Any questions, don't hesitate to reply. Happy to provide any help.
