Should I install Bitcoin Proxy?

Hi all,

Running a full Bitcoin Core node. Will install electrs and mempool. Might also instal BTCpayserver and lightning (LND). In most of those apps, Bitcoin Proxy seems to be an optional dependency.

Based on the description of Bitcoin Proxy it seems to be of value in a pruned node setup. Since I’m running a full node I’m wondering if Bitcoin Proxy is recommended? Does it provide speed improvements or something else worth the install?

Any suggestions/opinions welcome. Thanks!

Proxy isn’t really useful for your use case as you’ve mentioned, you’re running an archival node.

Thanks @Mechanic! Glad I asked.
