Bitcoin Core Client V0.11.0 Hints At Block Pruning For Future Release
Bitcoin development is constantly evolving, and the Bitcoin Core developers are working around the clock to increase network security and stability.
To put this in layman terms, Bitcoin Core users can remove all data included in older Bitcoin blocks, which are not required in order to run a full network node.
As amazing as all of this sounds, it is important to keep in mind that block pruning is not yet available to Bitcoin Core Wallet users.
This new Bitcoin Core client will – hopefully – include the block pruning option for users who want to run a Bitcoin Node.
As has been the case with every major Bitcoin Core client update, further changes to increase performance and memory usage will be made as well.
