- Benefits of running a full bitcoin node

- When you run a Bitcoin node, you bolster security and enhance your privacy. Also, running a node enables you to prove that nobody manipulates the network or changes the rules.

- Creating transactions with your Bitcoin node can enhance security by eliminating or reducing the need to expose private keys. 

- What's more, running a Bitcoin node enables you to complete and broadcast transactions from it, thereby avoiding services that can compromise personal information. A node eliminates the use of a block explorer in verifying a transaction status. A block explorer allows a third party to track transaction history while linking it to an IP address. Thus, it can leak physical location details, Bitcoin balance, and financial counterparties. Running a Bitcoin node can help you avoid such issues.
