Why You Should Run a Full Node. Bitcoin Tech Talk #251

The big difference with Bitcoin’s design is that every transaction is continually under scrutiny. Fractional reserve lending is not possible because everyone running a full node will catch it. There is no trust involved, but continuous verification. That verification process is useful to the network from a game-theory perspective, but the main reason to run a full node is for the benefit of the user.
