(Updated) [Staking] Reddcoin Core client GUI wallet on a Raspberry Pi Model 3B

Intro

This thread is an update to my first Reddcoin staking tutorial that was written 7 months ago.
 
The reason for the update
My Reddcoin Core software crashed and became unusable. My Raspberry Pi 3B would lag and freeze, I couldn't stake anymore.
 
Instead of just redoing everything the same way, I wanted to see if I could improve on 3 points:

If you would like to tip me
Writing a tutorial like this takes time and effort; tips are appreciated. My Reddcoin address: RqvdnNX5MTam855Y2Vudv7yVgtXdcYaQAW.

This video shows how long it takes to start Reddcoin Core.   TL;DR:
     

Extra

Backup
Backup your wallet to prevent losing the RDDs in your wallet! There are two methods to backup, do both. Make new backups if you create a new receiving address!
 
 
   
Boot with only 1 USB drive plugged in:
Make sure only the USB drive (with the swap partition and data partition) is plugged in when you boot up your Raspberry Pi. This to make sure the swap partition (/dev/sda1) is recognized correctly.   If you boot up with multiple USB drives, Lubuntu might see the USB drive with the swap partition as the second drive (instead of the first drive), and ignore the 2 GB swap partition. If this happens, starting Reddcoin can render the Raspberry Pi unresponsive.
   
Connection issues If you have issues syncing the blockchain because you have 0 network connections, please follow the instructions in this thread.
   
Start Reddcoin Core easier
Run a shell script (.sh file), so you can start Reddcoin just by double clicking on an icon on your Desktop.
   
Minimization options
Adjust minimization options, so you can safely press on the X button (the close/exit button on the upper right corner).
   
RealVNC VNC Viewer (client) and VNC Connect (server): To remote connect to the Raspberry Pi, I use VNC Viewer ad VNC Connect from RealVNC.
 
   
Chromium as browser: The updates break Firefox, the browser crashes when you try to run it. Install another browser, Chromium, to solve this issue.
   
Updates / Upgrades
If Software Updater shows up and tells you that there is updated software available, do not install the updates using Software Updater. Use LXTerminal to update Lubuntu.

Let me love the Bitcoin, please.

After reading tiny snippets about Bitcoin all the time I decided to take a closer look at it ... and I was floored.
Please don't get me wrong, I really really really want to love the concept, but it seems to be more or less unusable. There are some huge upsides to it: Built on mistrust, fixed amount of money, decentralized system, anonymity and so on. But my reality looked something like this:
Now as you might say, I should have read up on the details (blockchain!) before - but getting started seems to be a big hurdle for the non-geeks out there. Nothing like "get started in seconds!". Even I had some trouble grasping the concept, and I'm sitting in front of a computer for about two decades now.
But wait, there's more! Since my connection is still under heavy load from the client, I could read up on all the things I have missed, and I found some inherent flaws:
For me, Bitcoins could be an awesome form of worldwide, internet-based form of micropayments. The biggest market would be developing countries. But there are technical and legal barriers which push it into a corner for geeks who see conspiracies everywhere and want to crash the system ... which is exactly not what it should be. I read about Ripple, it seems to be a better alternative just because of the possibility for easy money exchanges - and it includes Bitcoin, too.
So, is there something I just don't get yet? I get the impression Bitcoin is a great idea, but just the prototype for something better.

My first experience with bitcoin was NOT positive :( + Questions

After seeing an interesting comment on /funny in which bitcoin currency is used to make tips across reddit I started to investigate and learn about the Bitcoin. I had heard about it before but I didn't know how it worked or what I had to do in order to use it.
A dozen Bitcoin Wiki entries later I download bitcoin-qt and create my first wallet. The system seemed very easy and straightforward and I had already started to apply for "free starter bitcoins" when I met "synchronization".
Now synchronization is not necessarily a deal breaker but it was annoying as hell. I'm using an old computer and it seemed as if it would take at least a day if not more to complete the whole process... and during that time my computer was getting slow as hell.
Now I'm quite a tech savy person and I know why in this P2P based system this is important, but for anyone else this would be unacceptable. Imagine elder people or not so tech savy persons trying out the system for the first time and noticing that they can't use it without occupying 2+ GiB of their HardDrive and having to wait a lot.
I did not complete the sync and tried to use the multibit instead. But since I had already applied to the Free starter bitcoins on some websites I wanted to keep my old wallet. I try to look for an import/export button but it seems that Bitcoin-qt doesn't support exportation and I needed to use a third party application called pywallet (command line!) to export my wallet and convert it into another plaintext format since the format used by bitcoin-qt was not supported by multibit.
And one would assume that the first thing you do when creating such a currency is to define a standard for the wallet and the applications. Again, I know how to use the command line but anyone who doesn't and who just wants to try out the system for the first time would be inmediately turned off by this limitation.
These are all issues that need to be fixed and addressed. Also, at the current situation it is much more comfortable and easier to set up an e-wallet than using standalone software on my computer. And if you ask me, it beats the purpose of creating a decentralized currency when in the end the most popular e-wallet services are going to hold most bitcoins and suppose a great security risk.
So I ask you: do you know any solutions to the above mentioned problems? Is there any way to reduce the impact by those hindrances?
And now to the questions:
Since I'm a very inquisitive mind and I'm still very much interested in bitcoins I would like to ask some questions I couldn't find properly answered in the wiki about the nature of the bitcoin system and how exactly it works.
I'd be very grateful if you could answer any of the following questions:
1. What exactly is a bitcoin? A string of text? A hash? A file with a string of text?
2. If I'm not mistaken, a bitcoin wallet is made of a public key and a private key. If I want to transfer my wallet from one program to another or a piece of paper... would I need to export or print out the strings of text that form the bitcoins itself or do I just need those two keys?
3. How does the bitcoin system know how much balance is inside an wallet/account. Does it typically ONLY check it against the chainblock or does it also make use of any bitcoin strings stored inside the wallet?
4. Cryptographically speaking... what happens when I transfer bitcoins?
Thank you!
*Please don't downvote me just because my first experience was negative. I'm still very interested and would like to learn a lot more. *
Edit: Thank you very much for all your answers! I can't reply to all of you (mainly because it's very late over here) but I feel that I understand the concept much better and also feel much more comfortable knowing that the only thing I ever need is my private and public key. It makes me care much less about software and wallet.data files, knowing that I can have everything I need written on piece of paper or saved in an encrypted file of my own. Then, when I need to spend bitcoins or check my balance I can use whatever software I deem best at the moment.
Thank you!
