Can you please add Bitcoin core as a plugin? It would allow a FreeNAS user to contribute to the bitcoin community as a FULL BITCOIN NODE and take pretty minimal resources. Since it runs in a jail, it will probably be the most secure instance of Bitcoin core on the internet ;-)
Keep in mind I am not talking about a Miner, but rather the transaction processing Node.
The package is already in the port tree as "bitcoin".

- Wallet support is disabled by default to much variables to track, as well user need to add a wallet address which i cant automate
- I plan to port a status interface to FreeBSD, Demo: http://bitcoinnodestats.romgens.com/ but its not a blocker yet
- its a plain node and does nothing else then sync transaction, custom settings can be set in /usr/local/etc/bitcoin.conf
- A Web Configurator can be found here https://jlopp.github.io/bitcoin-core-config-generator/ this info is printed out in the terminal version
to test the plugin
git clone https://github.com/freenas/iocage-ix-plugins
iocage fetch -P -n ./bitcoin-node.json dhcp=on bpf=yes vnet=on --accept
