Bitcoin On The Go Mobile

This is an op-ed by Anthony Feliciano, Bitcoin event organizer and Bitcoin Magazine taxpayer.

A couple of years ago, I had a problem when the power went out in my apartment and my RaspiBlitz got disconnected. It was the start of a new project, that is, “how do I prevent this from happening again?” I won’t go into technical setup in this article, as I’ve wrote an article with detailed instructions on how you can try this out for yourself.

This is more fun, let’s be #reckless with a Lightning Node article. I mean, if we’re going to call ourselves Bitcoiners and not get #reckless with tools, apps, and hardware, what are we doing? The premise here, I was sent to California for work. Now, if you run an LN node at home, experience power outages, internet outages, hardware crashes, and anything else you might encounter while maintaining a node, but you’re home, so you know how to fix everything and get back to normal. with minimal downtime. What if you’re on the road for an extended period of time and that happens? I hope you have someone at home who can fix it or at least guide you. If you don’t, will it take your node offline for “x” days? I mean, I guess that’s being #reckless in a way. What did I do, you ask? Of course, I took it on the road with me, of course. The term mobile banking it has been used for a couple of decades due to the development of protocols, infrastructure and hardware that make it possible. So I thought, what if I could display my Raspiblitz node as mobile banking 2.0?
