This caught my eye; HTC phone with a bitcoin full node?! Wonder if it's at all real.
@waxwing https://bitcoinmagazine.com/articles/htc-launch-exodus-1s-smartphone-full-node-capacity/ mentions pruned node, so it at least seems viable (if a bit iffy wrt. mobile data caps in a lot of countries).
@waxwing @Firedragon888 @kekcoin probably not hot until it hits blocks from 2019. The assumevalid feature causes it to not verify signatures up to a fairly recent block, so CPU isn't a bottleneck. Memory/disk reads run less hot. Downloading <0.5 MB per second (typical verification speed I've seen on ARM chips) might cause more heat though. Maybe put it on your sink so heat can dissipate. Not in your pants: I've a phone explode, it's not good for your legs 🙂
