A machine consists of Raspberry Pi 3B+ to build SmartCash Node Wallets for ARM64 and provide it to the community.
Currently SmartCash Node Wallets are only available for Windows, Linux and macOS based on Intel Architecture (x86 and x64).
A lot of people have problems to run Node Wallets on a secure system. A lot of people are using Windows or all day computer, which can be easily compromised.
A good solution is to set up a Raspberry Pi with Desktop and Node Wallet but unfortunately there are no binaries for ARM64 architecture.
Why Raspberry Pi?
Why we need you, to do that?
Everyone could do that, of course but you need a Raspberry Pi and a lot of Linux knowledge. For example it's not possible to use ppa:bitcoin/bitcoin on Raspbian to install Berkeley DB libs 4.8, but this is necessary to keep your wallet portable and compatible with other installations. So you have to build these libraries by yourself. Also it will take a lot of time. And so on. There a lot of problems, which have to be solved before you can run a build.
Long story short: It's a lot of work and you need a lot of time and knowlegde. It's much easier just to download the binaries.
The goal of this proposal is to create a hardware environment to build every release of node wallets also for ARM64 Architecture so every user can download it from GitHub and install/use it on a Raspberry Pi. The hardware should look also good (that's the reason for Pi-Top) to demonstrate it on Meetups. For example on the southern germany Cryptocurrency Meetup in Stuttgart and Munich. Also a developtment Environment is need, of course. This means: Display, Keyboard, and so on. All these could be fullfilled by a Pi-Top.
The founder of this proposal will build every future release of Node Wallet also for ARM64 Architecture for the rest of all days. Promise :-)
