Com-Guard.com Inc., the provider of numerous security applications has announced that it would release the bitcoin full node on Raspberry Pi in the final quarter of this year. Apparently, the company is in the final phase of testing its product. CGUD DataCrypt™ is to be the first ever contribution to the blockchain Industry made by the company. Dr. Edward W. Savarese, CEO of Com-Guard.com Inc. told in a press release,
Com-Guard.com, Inc. has expanded its expertise using the Raspberry Pi line of Computers and implementing Blockchain with a Bitcoin Full Node as a fully configured system. The objective is to configure a solution so that the end user will not have to be a Computer expert to implement it on the Bitcoin network and deliveries are expected at the end of the calendar fourth quarter 2018.
The company has based its blockchain product on the article “How to Build a Bitcoin Full Node on a Raspberry Pi” that was published on August 22, 2017. A full node is a program that allows individuals on a blockchain to confirm the validity of transactions they have requested. All of these full nodes enable the network to form a well connected network which can carry out peer to peer transactions with ease. It was mentioned in the article that,
As the Bitcoin network grows, it’s important that people maintain their full nodes. We need to constantly bring new nodes onto the network to keep it decentralized and healthy and a Full Node is simply a computer that is running the Bitcoin Core Wallet. The Bitcoin Core Wallet, by default, downloads a full copy of the Blockchain.
In the article released by Mario Dian in late 2016, emphasis was laid on the fact that inclusion of more full nodes in the bitcoin blockchain was mandatory, or the users might have to rely on centralized platforms. Raspberry Pi 3 was deemed essentially the best tool to the creation of a completely decentralized platform. He said,
Running a full node is crucial for securing the Bitcoin network. Without a substantial number of nodes decentralization of Bitcoin would be in danger. If you’re a service provider or a volunteer, Raspberry Pi 3 provides a cheap way to access and maintain the full blockchain and contribute to overall security and performance of the network.
A secure connection holds utmost priority when a transaction on a centralized or even a decentralized network is made. Com-Guard, Inc. aims to provide low cost and extremely efficient solutions by providing this blockchain software on Raspberry Pi Platform using Linux based Software and ARM Architecture Hardware.
