However, as you say, it still needs to download the whole chain (thus requiring a certain amount of disk space). So my question still applies: I need something lighter than a full node, that is an SPV working with headers only, which provides an RPC service, similar to that offered by bitcoind. @Jannes: Thanks for the clarification.
The downfall of this country will be from a very thick layer of "Duuhhhh" starting at your address. As you continue to work on that elusive GED in your parents basement, skip ahead to the section on global supply and demand, and you will suddenly realize how inane your comment is, blaming it on one person.
Bitcoin is a digital payment currency that utilizes cryptocurrency (a digital medium of exchange), blockchain technology, and a peer-to-peer (P2P) network as opposed to a central authority (such as a bank) to create and manage monetary transactions. The open source, P2P Bitcoin
network facilitates the creation of all bitcoin and manages all bitcoin
Despite immense speculation, no conclusive evidence has pointed to the true identity (or identities) behind the Satoshi Nakamoto pseudonym. Satoshi Nakamoto supposedly left the project in late 2010 without revealing any identifying information, as noted in the Official Bitcoin FAQ . The first bitcoin
transaction took place in early 2009, effectively mining the first block. In 2008, the Bitcoin specification and proof of concept was published in a cryptography mailing list by a person or group named Satoshi Nakamoto.
In 2010, the price of a single bitcoin increased 1.000% from $0.008 USD to $0.08 USD . The beginning of 2017 saw a rise in significant price fluctuations, peaking at nearly $20K USD and steadily dropping to an average of $7K USD for a single bitcoin. Because bitcoin has had an extremely volatile trading history, the first bitcoins were traded for pennies.
Biden rose the gas prices by halting the use of our pipelines and using other transport methods to bring the oil to the consumers, (1000 miles away) which costs fuel costs together with transport costs raises our gas prices. Nope, puts a giant target on our back for someone who wants to gain control in an industry that will have become astronomical in value due to shortage and limited supply indefinitely m, which in turn will have history repeat itself with a world war because with all the hate America had learned to express, we will no longer be the superpower of the world. With our allies becoming scarce I don’t think 400 million will have a chance. Who can fight 3 billion people. And will be easy to take us over perhaps by China by sheer population advantage. Seeing that their population is about to double with the new laws of have as many children as you want. Reason would be so we have control of all the oil once everyone else’s oil is gone.
For smthg I have never used, and btc will not. THEN I was given a "FREE" Web TV 30 day trial. But then I was automatically shunted into monthly payments of $19.97 USD. I got scammed for the OBD fuel savers.

By analogy, some number of generals plan an attack on a castle together and each general can choose to start the attack or retreat. However, to successfully take the castle, all the generals must act synchronously. Next, given that the generals are too far from each other to use direct communication, messengers are used to carry messages. It is no exaggeration to say that Byzantine fault tolerance (BFT) is the most complex and rigorous tolerance model. The messengers in this story represent communication channels in distributed networks and the generals represent nodes. They may successfully delivery messages after a very long time, fail to deliver messages or even change with messages. The generals may not be reliable, either, for example, one of them may be a traitor who does not act in accordance with the plan. However, bitcoin messages are not reliable. Byzantine originated from Lamport's paper.
Historically, BTC has bottomed around at 200 DMA or just below which is 25% down from the current levels. If we see the technical chart, Bitcoin is still trading way above its 200-day moving average (DMA). Popular crypto analyst Rekt Capital explains:
Investment in bitcoin begins by establishing a secure bitcoin "wallet" that stores public and private keys for bitcoin transactions. Some countries require specific information to verify the identity of a user trying to buy and sell bitcoin; in the United States, a user must provide a valid driver’s license, Social Security Number, and other documents in compliance with anti-money laundering legislation. These wallets are typically a mobile application or desktop program.
