Criticism

Sync time

Bandwidth use

  • Requires a very long synchronization wallet;
  • Bitcoin Core has special requirements for PC hardware;
  • A fully loaded Bitcoin Core client weighs about 92 gigabytes, so you’ll need a lot of free space on the hard drive.

Lack of multiwallet support; node+wallet tied together
