- Reliably send Ethereum transactions
- Be connected to main nodes directly (speed)
- Disk size (20-40 GB)
Given this, what is the recommended configuration to run an ethereum node?
geth --fast Takes too much space. So does
parity --pruning fast.
geth --light only connects to light clients and therefore is not entirely reliable.
geth --warp Gets you to a point where you can send transactions in a few GBs of space but the blockchain does keep syncing and eventually takes too much space.
Suggestions? What is actually required for an ethereum node to send transactions?
