I am running bitcoin-core on TailsOS which seems to work out of the box. I think TailsOS blocks all unsafe requests but I would like to know what settings I should enable to run it really privately. So far I start my node via

$ ./bitcoin-qt onlynet=onion

Is anything else required? In this answer I read about a bunch of other settings but feel that isn't required on tails, correct?

  • Thank you @Prayank but that answer seems to be also largely not tails specific so most settings are likely not applicable. Commented Nov 22, 2020 at 11:28
  • I will try using bitcoin core on Tails and share things later

  • e.g. tails disables UDP and prevents DNS leaks in general so I don't see that setting is required. tails.boum.org/contribute/design/Tor_enforcement/DNS In fact, my feeling is that bitcoin core does not need any non-default settings in tails. Commented Nov 22, 2020 at 17:07
