What are the security tradeoffs of running a pruned Bitcoin Core node for a multisig wallet, such as Specter?
It seems that using a multisig wallet with a pruned Bitcoin Core node could be a good incremental improvement of securing assets vs. storing funds on an exchange or on a single seed hardware wallet.
How is the pruned node run for Specter? Is it running off of Bitcoin Core directly? I've heard that similar services, Unchained Capital, run a node supported by Blockstream if I understand correctly.
Is the privacy risk mitigated by connecting Bitcoin Core's pruned node through Tor/VPN (That do not save/collect logs)? Chain analysis companies are able to gather information from non-self-hosted nodes and tie it to personal information.
Are there additional tradeoffs to consider?
