Bitnodes Launches 'Power-Efficient' Bitseed Rival

According to the website, which monitors bitcoin node performance worldwide, the Bitnodes Hardware B1 model comes equipped with the latest version of Bitcoin Core and is said to be a "low footprint quad-core single-board computer built and configured to operate a dedicated bitcoin full node".

In interview, Yeow said:

"The goal of Bitnodes Hardware is to provision ready-to-run hardware for everyday consumer to launch their own Bitcoin node at home and become part of the network for a truly disruptive technology."

Consuming 2.5 watts during normal operation – a typical desktop computer uses  65 watts – the $168.00 node will enable users to contribute to the bitcoin network by relaying bitcoin transactions across the globe

Its rival, Bitseed, launched it's first plug-in node launched in March. That product, slightly cheaper at $149, is credited with using less than 10 watts of power – four times more than Yeow's node.

Earlier this month, Bitseed also announced it was open-sourcing the creation of its new plug-in node, asking contributors to help develop its product in exchange for rewards.
