Hi,

Introduction:

I am going to build / set up a bitcoin full node following this article:

https://www.google.no/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://medium.com/%40stadicus/perfect-low-cost-%25EF%25B8%258Flightning%25EF%25B8%258F-node-4c2f42a4ff7b&ved=2ahUKEwiZ_4zXksvbAhUMCMAKHd8dCEsQFjAAegQIBRAB&usg=AOvVaw0G3wYho9zlF3EHNRxVvtj1

The hardware used is an Odroid HC2 with a separately bought HDD:

http://www.hardkernel.com/main/products/prdt_info.php?g_code=G151505170472

It has 2 GB of RAM.

But I also want to build / set up a Zcash full node. To be able to handle shielded addresses and transactions, however, the Zcash node requires at least 4 GB of RAM.

My question:

Can I stack 4 Odroid HC2s, put a HDD in just one of them, and that will equal 1 machine with 1 HDD, 32 core CPU (8 core CPU in each HC2), and 8 GB of RAM?

If yes, how is it practically done? My knowledge about computers is rather limited. I posted a similar post in the Zcash forum:

https://forum.z.cash/t/zcash-node-hardware-guide-anybody/29567

If stacking of HC2s cannot be done, anybody know of other hardware that can be used for this purpose?

Thanks! :)

I wouldn't recommend mining bitcoin.. you'll make very little money.
