As Ethereum ecosystem grows supporting the Ethereum network by running a full node has never been so important. The Raspberry pi is a pretty good option to do so:

  • There are lots of Raspberry Pis out there
  • The support by the community is Huge
  • Low cost and low power consumption

Note that the current raspberry pi 3 is not able to run a full node: Processing power, i/o bandwidth, and network bandwidth, mostly make it impossible to run a full node. Maybe this may have change with the raspberry pi 4 – 4 GB?
