My biggest disappointment with the bear market is NOT that I will have to wait to for the bull market to return to get back what I have invested, but that I can't afford the hardware I want to get so that I can play with LN, BTCPay and all that other stuff. I can't really do it on my work computer and I have no other options. I have obsessed for months about setting up a banking machine, but it looks like I will have to wait until spring now...
Hi @KingWm, why not get a refurbished PC? You can get a Dell i5 setup for around $200, e.g. this one (500 GB HDD, 8 GB RAM):
. That is plenty enough for working through "Mastering Bitcoin" and "Programming Bitcoin" (when available).
