    What do you mean by Bitcoin Core for Ubuntu? The release Linux binaries are statically linked and should work on every distro. If you're talking about the PPA, perhaps not so much. Commented Jul 12, 2018 at 16:22

it should work, but filesystem access from within WSL might be slower then using the windows server. There are some benchmarks available. Perhaps another alternative to consider would be running Bitcoin Core in vagrant. I don't know if and how bitcoind would be slower.
