I've been interested in learning more about the people and tools withing the hacking/scamming community, so I put up a honeypot at https://bidenwatch.live to find first hand what some attacks are like. I use an open-source, community based project known as T-Pot or tpotce, which is located at https://github.com/telekom-security/tpotce.

T-Pot is a really easy go to to spin up. I highly recommend looking into it if you, too, are interested in those kinds of information. I have had friends run honeypots before with some success. My only concern is it's about $20/mo to run the VPS on Hetzner and that's about as cheap as I could find. The vmachine is 4core AMD (something) with 8GB ram (needed by TPot) and 160GB SSD (requires 128GB min).

This is only day one for https://bidenwatch.live , so we'll see what happens. I will certainly report back with details, graphs, fun pictures, stories, and other show and tell as soon as I am able. Now it's time for the wait game. Talk to you all soon, thanks for reading!
