*How to connect Electrum directly to your full node.

If you can, but you don't... you should have your head examined!


@Sosthene can i type that right into the terminal & how so... thanks!

how to confirm that i'm pruning my full node...

shows-- "prune -false"

and my memory is quickly running out...


@fed i guess that added complexity would b valuable for some... i figure, if many wallets, like Trezor do it, i'm not worried...

@fed "may ... in the coming years" 😅 well, i'll take that trade-off now, so that someone can't simply $5 wrench attack me...

i wonder why @aantonop really tried to emphasize
this *inaccurate* point 🤔...
many wallets use 12 words, like the @Trezor T...

I fully expect to be physically attacked at some point, either due to a rabid nocoiner (the wealth transfer will be very uncomfortable... for them) or just a low tier criminal.

that's why I work out, run, and am actively looking into personal protection.

@nic u might find some useful ideas in my work with focuses in this, esp. how to safely hodl your private keys...
