I always wanted to run a bitcoin node at home. But I always worry because it is related with bitcoin (BTC has value).
I have been broadcasting my transaction using Bluewallet by scanning qr code, or copy pasting a signed transaction string. I am wondering if there is any security risk in doing so. From here I thought it's better to set up my own node just to broadcast transaction using
So I have some questions on what I am about to setup.
- Is this bitcoin.conf secure for the purpose?
# network testnet=0 #proxy= #addnode= #connect #noirc maxconnections=20 # JSON-RPC # accept JSON-RPC? server=1 rpcuser=secretrpcuser rpcpassword=secretrpcpassword #rpctimeout= rpcport=8332 rpcconnect=192.168.11.5 #rpcssl daemon=1
As I disabled rpcssl on my
bitcoin.conf, is it secure to sendrawtransaction without SSL?
Is it more secure to broadcast transaction using
sendrawtransactionon my private node? Or is it better to do it on public nodes like bluewallet, or sites like pushtx.com or sites lsited here: https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Transaction_broadcasting
What are the possible security risks of running own node at home?
What are the possible risks on doing
sendrawtransactionfrom private home bitcoin node? Also the risk for doing it from public nodes?
Thank you in advance
