In 2020 it is still hard to find quality instructions on how to run a bitcoin full node in the cloud. In this tutorial we want to share how it can be done in a somewhat time- and money-efficient way.
The tutorial steps you through the setup and some of our considerations how to achieve the initial sync in a reasonably fast way without depending pre-synced environments. We are offering recommendations, not guarantees. There is always potential to optimise - feel free to submit an improvement PR for the post 🤓
