On Thursday, May 28, Bitnodes announced the release of a new Bitnodes hardware.

“The goal of Bitnodes hardware is to provision ready-to-run hardware for everyday consumer to launch their own Bitcoin node at home and become part of the network for a truly disruptive technology,” said Bitnodes developer Addy Yeow.

The Bitnodes hardware B1 model comes equipped with the latest version of Bitcoin Core and is said to be a “low footprint quad-core single-board computer built and configured to operate a dedicated bitcoin full node”.

Consuming 2.5 watts during normal operation – the $168.00 node will enable users to contribute to the bitcoin network by relaying bitcoin transactions across the globe.

Bitnodes is a platform that estimates the size of the Bitcoin network by finding all the reachable nodes in the network.
