Every example/tutorial looks the same:
rpcpassword=<somehashofsomesort> and rpcusername=rpcuser
They always use something like
rpcuser, and some hash for the password. Why is it like this? Does it offer any advantage to break out of the shell and have your username and password be something you like?
In another place I found this:
Does setting your username to
alice cause you to no longer be anonymous, and that's why everyone has the same username?
Do I even need a username and password?
