Full node usage

A full node is software such as Bitcoin Core or Bitcoin Knots, which processes the entire blockchain. Even if you have pruning enabled, it is still a full node.

Using your full node for your wallet means that when you receive a transaction, you do not consider it to be confirmed until you verify it with your full node. This can be done either by using the wallet built-in to the full node, or setting up another wallet to exclusively trust your own full node for such information.

I run a full node, and use it for my wallet.
Total answers: 89
I run a full node, and would like to use it for my wallet, but setting this up is too complicated and/or I do not know how to do it.
Total answers: 85
I run a full node, and I understand how to use it for my wallet, but I don't use it for my wallet anyway.
Total answers: 88
I cannot run a full node, because I literally do not have sufficient resources (bandwidth, CPU, etc).
Total answers: 88
I do not run a full node, because the resource requirements are higher than I am willing to give it.
Total answers: 87
I don't run a full node, specifically because of the long first-time synchronisation (including resource limitations or even simply just the wait).
