HOWTO: Run a Full Bitcoin Node + Armory : Bitcoin

[Guide] Setting up Trezor + Electrum 2.02beta + armory on a Raspberry Pi 2. Cold offline signing for $40

Having just received my Pi 2, I am happy to report that a fresh Raspbian install, on an 8 GB Class 10 MicroSD card : Electrum / Armory / Trezor / BTChip all work with my Single Board Computer setup script (it also works for Pi B, Pi B+ Raspbian and BeagleBone Black Debian & ubuntu, also tested on Odroid C1 Ubuntu 14.4)
The full "!" installation takes about 40 mins on Pi 2, which is at least twice as fast as on the Pi B+ / BBB

HOWTO: Run a Full Bitcoin Node + Armory

Estimated total time: Up to 2 hours, not including blockchain downloading.
You can install this on a VPS, a spare PC, or on your own PC. You can install it in Virtualbox on your own PC, or into Windows. If you just want to try it out, I recommend installing in Virtualbox.
  1. Download and install Virtualbox from (, and download an Ubuntu 14.04 64bit Desktop ISO from, and follow the guide here (I recommend 2GB of RAM, 3GB if you can spare it): . It's a little outdated but close enough that things are the same.  
  2. After installing Ubuntu in Virtualbox, to make it fullscreen you will need Guest Additions. Run these commands by clicking on the swirl icon top right, typing ter and opening Terminal: sudo apt-get install build-essentials module-assistant and then sudo m-a prepare Before selecting Devices > Insert Guest Additions CD image, telling Ubuntu to install them, and shutting down. //Thanks go to for those instructions.//  
  3. Next I went into the Virtual Machines settings and changed Network Adapter 1 to be "Attached to Bridged Network" instead of "Attached to NAT".  
  4. After booting the machine back up, I followed the steps here: And installed both bitcoin-qt and bitcoind. Skip over the parts where you edit bitcoin-qt's settings to start at boot, or edit cron to start bitcoind at boot, since this will interfere with using armory.  
  5. Next I followed the instructions here to install Armory: The reason I used these instructions was because I was having difficulty getting Armory to install (online or offline) on Ubuntu 14.04. Might just be me.  
  6. I then started up Armory in Offline Mode by clicking on the swirl icon top left and typing Armory. In the program, after clicking Skip, I scrolled down slightly, clicked on Download Bitcoin, Download, and agreed to let it do whatever it wanted to; (which was download and install Satoshi).  
  7. I then closed Armory Offline and opened Armory, which began downloading the blockchain from a torrent. I then went into File > Settings (top left of your screen, near the swirl; menu options will appear once the mouse hits that taskbar) and personally chose to Disable OS and version reporting. There is a setting here for "Enable settings for proxies/Tor" but I haven't ticked it yet, since I haven't set Tor up.  
  8. Follow the instructions here to set up port forwarding so your node is reachable, and to test this:  
If I want to broadcast transactions over Tor, but not receive incoming connections over Tor, is that a problem for the health of the Bitcoin Tor network? Or will those transactions be broadcast out to "clearnet" nodes, as opposed to hidden ones?
Thanks to all writers of articles referenced here for your help.
By the way, even if you don't want to run a bitcoin node full time, I've read that running one even 6 hours a day is useful. These are instructions for ubuntu but you can also run it from Windows on the same machine you work on (I don't know about privacy implications). Perhaps someone should write an article about running a bitcoin node on your PC at work!

Bitcoin newbie looking for advice

looking for thoughts.
Installed Armory on an Ubuntu 12.04 desktop, created an encrypted wallet, and have the bitcoin data syncing.
I would like to dabble in mining as part of a group (suggestions welcome! ). Is it considered bad practice to use the machine your wallet is on for mining?
