I have had Centrifuge on my radar for a number of months now thanks to the youtuber Chico Crypto. I know a bit about the project obviously to know that I like it but unfortunately I cannot get involved with the tinlake pools because of the minimum required investment amounts.
Anyways, I was just wondering how much technical expertise would be required in order to run a validator node? I have done a few things here and there with a raspberry pi 4 but find it rather intimidating and I can become quite flustered and frustrated with it. I wouldn’t really consider myself a tech savvy person, even though my main hobby and passion is cryptocurrency lol.
I have some basic command-line experience obviously, and could pretty easily format an old desktop computer into a Linux build and then run the miner through there - if possible. Due to my lack of knowledge and experience with coding etc I’m not really sure if: a) this would be possible and b) if it would be “worth” the hassle of doing it. Can anybody shed some light on these issues please?
When I consider something to be “worth” the time etc I of course am referring to more than just a $$ ROI. For example since I got my raspi over a year ago I have probably spent maybe 50-100 hours SOLID trying to use it. And currently it is not plugged in because of how unsuccessful I was with it and after a certain point it just wasn’t “worth it” to keep trying to make something work with it. Obviously I learned a decent amount which is very valuable but I’m sure a youtube course for 4-10 hours might have taught me just as much without the headache(s)! Lol.
Anyways sorry for the ramble. I look forward to hearing what yall have to say about the matter. Thank you
