Supply-chain attacks are quite popular these days, as the Solarwind hack highlighted. Don’t trust blindly containers, and run sanity checks on your environment(s)! Alephium is a sharded blockchain which, at the time of writing, plan to launch its mainnet in September 2021 🤞. Details about Alephium is out of the scope of this article, but I strongly recommend to get to know this awesome project.
Running a full node in 10 seconds Alephium Wiki provides some guidance on how to run a full node in the testnet.
Supply-chain attacks are quite popular these days, as the Solarwind hack demonstrated. My advise is don’t trust blindly containers, and run sanity checks on your build environment! Geth, the official implementation of Ethereum protocol written in Go, can be cross-compiled for different CPU architecture including ARM.
At the time of writing, the official docker image of geth is not build for ARM architecture, only linux/amd64.
We will explain here how to build your own flavour of geth container from the sources for different platforms.
I got a new gift today. A few Raspberry Pi 4…
Nice hardware, especially the aarch64 architecture and 8GB of RAM. This specification makes it useful beyond IoT use-cases.
The project they are meant for might be slightly CPU intensive, so some passive cooling is more than a nice to have
Oh, look, they multiplicated!
Memory flashing in progress…
What’s left is stacking, wiring and firing up!
