POS Coins i own and wich wallets i am using (Raspberry Pi only)

in cryptocurrency •  5 months ago 

First of all i love POS coins. It is like passive income, you get coins for doing nothing :P.
POS is not like POW coins, you receive coins when you help the network with you're node/open wallet.
The more coins how greater the reward (and less time between rewards).

To run POS coins you need to have you're wallet 24/7 open on a PC. I was running the wallets on Windows 10 with a desktop computer.
Note: not all POS coins are like that. You also have coins like Neo where you can claim you're rewards and don't have to run a wallet 24/7.
The PC i was running was not that "green" type machine with its old i7 processor. It also made noise.
POS coins say that they are a lot greener than a POW because there are no miners to help the network or less than POW only coins.
But running a desktop PC 24/7 is also not that green.
I had a Raspberry Pi 1B lying around and i tough: maybe i can run a wallet on this device.
It is a small PC with no fans and a very low power consumption.

My first Raspberry Pi 1 Model A with a 700MHz and 256MB RAM

The Raspberry Pi 1 Model A is not that powerful and has only 256MB of ram. Than i got a Raspberry Pi 3B. It is a lot faster with 4 cores instead of 1 and 1GB of ram.
I searched on the internet for wallets that can run on a Raspberry Pi.
All the POS coins i owned have a Raspberry Pi wallet so i was a lucky guy!
Now when i see a good POS coin i always search for a Raspberry Pi staking wallet.

When you are using a graphical interface OS and a graphical interface wallet (QT) you can only run 1 wallet on a Raspberry Pi because the limited RAM (512MB on a Zero and 1GB on a Pi3).
So i bought more Pi's and installed them all with their own wallet.

Here is the list i am running at the moment:

In the next posts i will show my hardware setups and software installs from all above.
Witch coin do you like the most?

I am currently running a SmartNode. I like what they are doing. It will be interesting to see if anything comes of the Bitcoin Confidential coin they are launching.

Smartcash looks very good and now you can get i for a good price. I'm also looking at this project. So maybe a next post is about this masternode coin.

Hi, we just upvoted your posts and looked over your profile and you are maybe interested in Steemeum a virtual mobile miner app and community.
