How do I identify my BU node?


Jan 5, 2016
I have BU installed and I can verify that it is using BU by running
bitcoind --version

Bitcoin Core Daemon version v0.11.2.0-b440a4f

But besides the "v0.11.2.0-b440a4f", how do I know how the node looks like to other nodes? (the connect message on Peer connect) or how network stats sites like know which nodes are running?

if you type getnetworkinfo in the debug console,
you'll see an identification string in "subversion" field,
and it will look like this
When you issue getpeerinfo you'll see other nodes
subversion fields, and that's how you tell what client
versions they are using.

btw, good to have you here, as I've greatly enjoyed
