Why does nobody create an “out of the box” Bitcoin-Node to buy?


The biggest obstacle to running my own bitcoin node would be setting the whole thing up, since im not a very tech savy person. I know, this could be treated as a hobby and is nice way to get your first programming trys. But why does nobody just sell them out of the box? What are the downsides or the risks?

Edit: Thanks to u/TheGreatMuffin i pulled the trigger on a [https://store.casa/lightning-node/](https://store.casa/lightning-node/) 🙂 Thanks to everyone in here, im looking forward running a fullnode and try out the LN.

Anyone wanted to buy a Casascius Bitcoin but was afraid to?


so i’ve been wanting one of these for a while and the thing holding me back is that it is known that the hologram can be removed and reapplied with the average person not being able to tell it was tampered with. Does this idea bother anyone else? A malicious seller could sell a fully “loaded” coin and have done what these hackers did. You check the casascius checker sites and it’s unredeemed but unknowingly the seller already has the private key waiting to sweep it after you pay a premium

This is the notice Tether put on the front of its website in order to try to get people to believe they’re solvent. Read the highlighted part… then realize that at the end of this same letter, they state that there still has been no proper audit proving that they are solvent. I dont buy it…
