The Pi-Node.img.gz is a pre configured Cardano node that can be used for minting NFT's, submitting transactions and can be further configured into a relay or core node for stake pool creation. It is configured with everything you need to quickly bootstrap a synced node with Nginx proxypass of Grafana for TLS encryption with a self signed certificate, working topology updater and gLiveView.
Consolidate and organize the various guides into a single document that can be followed or referenced specifically for running a pool using two (or more) Raspberry Pi 4B (the 8GB version) and one offline Pi for cold key operations.
Provide documentation of every step taken while building the Pi-Node image available for bootstrapping pool creation. A reference & guide.
The most popular guides out there are aimed at x86 architecture and 'knowing what to throw away and knowing what to keep' is not always clear. I aim to change that 'with a little help from my friends'. 🎸
