Subject: [gentoo-user] OT bitcoind alternative

1 Hello all,
3 Sorry for the off-topicness,
5 I run bitcoind on a rather large VM with my original bitcoin qt wallet.
6 It is working well, but bitcoin core is very resource hungry.
7 I am looking for an alternative that I can run without a gui on the VM,
8 that will also be able to read my wallet.dat
9 Tried btcd, but it is not compiling,
11 I basically just need RPC access for payments and balance checking, I do
12 not need to have the whole blockchain.
13 That was costing me too much bandwidth anyway.
15 Do you have any recommendations?
17 Kind regards,
18 Coert
