What are the benefits of connecting to my own node?
- Connecting to your own node offers several key benefits: 1. Greater privacy: By operating your own node, you can broadcast transactions directly, reducing the chances of your transaction data being intercepted or monitored. 2. Sovereignty: Your node operates based on the consensus rules that you define, giving you greater control over how it participates in the Bitcoin network. 3. Enhanced security: Eliminating dependencies on third-party nodes reduces the risk of being affected by their potential security vulnerabilities.
