I'm debating whether to run bitcoind/ JSON-RPC on a server from my house that takes requests from users on hosted VPS. While I'm not starting a bitcoin poker site, I can explain what I'm doing easier with that. A user sends bitcoins to a pre-generated address. When user sends bitcoins, the home server will see whether it is sent then tell the VPS, which will then give the user chips or credits.
My questions :
- Will this eat up my internet from home assuming I have 100 gb bandwidth / 6-8 mbps upload speeds? If not, how many people can be served at a time?
- Does anyone actually do this compared to using a hosted vps/dedicated server because they want security and don't want to rely on 3rd party services like blockchain?
