Raspberry Pi 3 as validator?

Does one, running a validator get awarded free zerps?

If by "zerps" you mean XRP: No. Running a validator is not directly rewarded by the network in any way.

I think it will never work. There is only 1Gb of RAM and you need at least 4. Moreover there is no USB 3 to put a USB3 to SATA adapter for an SSD.
I'd try with the up board instead if someone is interested to try.

Building would be impossible with unity builds, (far too little RAM), maybe cross-compiling or trying to build a nounity variant might work. Running is still not possible, the ledger state is larger than the 1 GB RAM on a RPi3.

IO is not a real issue if you want to validate since you wouldn't attach a node store to a validator anyways.

I tried for a short while but I didn't get it to work (wouldn't build) on a Raspi 3. I think even if someone would get it to build the Pi would not manage to keep up (IO).

Thanks Wietse! I didn't realise your name here is  @xrptipbot or I would have tagged you rather than ask on twitter DOH :crazy:

Are there any other options besides a pi then, while still being in the same vein (ie not a bulky system)?

Renting a server does not require any space at home, you can try an up board or a NUC. ARM boards with 8GB RAM are rather rare, so you'll likely have to look for these x86 options.

Yeah well, prepared for the possibilities in the future right? @xrptipbot account may be used for a tipbot here one day... (I'd like to build the integration over here as well). Now at least someone else can't register this username :)

Good thinking! I did a post about your xrptipbot the other day where I tried to hint at it coming to a chat forum near us. Which would be here! So its great that you are actually thinking of trying it.

With the wind from behind and a bit of luck your system could make XRP the social media  currency of "like" :good:
