I ´ve succesfully installed bitcoind and bitcoin-cli. I got some questions about it:
I run bitcoind in the background by typing: bitcoind -daemon and block chain begins to download:
by typing getinfo I can see how many blocks are known to my client on the line “blocks”… that´s ok for me.
But what happens at the end?. I don´t see that bitcoind reports me anything back on the shell.
I see by typing getinfo that blockchain is already on my computer. Then I turn off or hibernate computer for few hours.
I run bitcoind -daemon everytime I turn on my computer and it downloads the latest blocks that, of course, are missing because my computer was turned off. Is that all? Am I already running a full node?. Do I have to wait for the full download of blockchain for sending or receiving BTC with blitcoin-cli?.
Does bitcoin-cli can work without this large file?.
Thanks in advance to those who could answer something back. Regards!.
