Install Bitcoin Core with pruned blockchain

Postby leon » Mon Apr 10, 2017 8:14 am

I was doubting if it's possible to set up a Bitcoin Core on AWS EC2. This will not be for mining, but additional for playing with Bitcoin core program and likewise use it as a Bitcoin Wallet. My question: Is it likely to connect Bitcoin Core with a cropped blockchain without downloading the full blockchain first? If so, what is the right command for doing this?

It is possible, but there is no point. Yes, it would help the network, with its low latency but the thing is, Core will only work to its full potential at a full blockchain. But yes, technically you could. But you can't run it on a T2 since it requires 2GB of ram and in its syncing stage it will simply lock up and freeze.
