Does running Breez count? That’s a LnD node, right 😇?

Indeed, Breez is a LN node. Few bitcoiners know that you can run a private node on your mobile too. https://darthcoin.substack.com/p/darth-and-chewie

Reminder that this poll will likely have a self-selection bias from people who run nodes.

No, but have plans to before end of year

i run full node with LN/Explorer BTC/Ride The light/Electrum Server

RTL is great on raspiblitz 😍

Guys I'm doing this on an old laptop and the sync'ing is very slow. I've upped db cache to the max value allowed on 64 bit processors. So it's not so much that I run a node. I sync a node. For at least two weeks now. Any advice welcome.

Sync is pretty slow on HDDs

My fat finger slipped, and pressed the wrong one.

Noooooo it's immutable....

Oh the horror.

I would pay 1000 sats to change my vote rn.

Quite confusing options. Define full node and light node. You can have several combinations today, full/light/neutrino/spv/mobile/desktop/browser and combinations of them. Is just a matter of knowledge and testing.

Maybe :)

Yes 1 full node with LN

Oh wow, 30%? And that on an enthusiast plattform like SN? Really shows you how early we still are.
