Android-Powered Bitcoin Full Nodes Arrive Sooner, ABCore Alpha Pre-Released on GitHub

An Alpha Proof Of Concept v0.68 for the long-awaited Android Bitcoin Core (ABCore) was pre-released on Oct. 2, 2018. The project was initially conceived in 2016 and aims to allow every individual to run a Bitcoin full-nodeon their Android mobile phone. ABCore is an android application meant to operate as a personal node or an “on-the-go” node that connects to a remote server or specific nodes on a user’s device via a mobile wallet. The full node software is called Knots and fetches real-time block data from a particular node address. All android devices are supported, including repurposed set-top boxes and even smart televisions. ABCore works on Android versions “Lollipop” onwards, including x86, x86_64, armhf updates, and does not gain revenue from in-app purchases or advertising. The application has been in alpha mode since 2016 and is spearheaded by Larry Nahum, the founder of Malta-based Bitcoin walletfirm Green address, as per the first commit on GitHub.
