Proof of Work Based Private Network

Geth-based private Ethereum networks on Blockdaemon use the proof of work consensus model. With this, you can either set up a small, private devnet for work that will ultimately end up on the Ethereum mainnet. Or, if you want to run a private chain and port contracts from the public mainnet, you’ll be able to understand how they work.

Bring Your Own Genesis Block

You can easily set the rules for your network through network settings. Supply your own genesis block and prefund accounts to get your ideas moving quickly. Change the genesis block and update as often as you want -- changes can be applied on a going-forward basis, or retroactively to all nodes, effectively resetting your network. Your testnet can move as fast as your ideas.

Ethstats included

Monitor your blockchain with ethstats, which is included for free and launches automatically with your first node. See what nodes are connected, the number of transactions, and your current blockheight. If you’re familiar with this industry-standard monitoring software you’ll be right at home.

Official Go Client for Ethereum Networks

Geth-based private networks use the official Ethereum client written in Go (geth). Your knowledge of geth from the ethereum mainnet will transfer seamlessly, as it’s the same client and codebase you’re already familiar with. You won’t need to spend any time learning a new client or a proprietary implementation.

Automatically Start Mining Private Transactions

Private geth-based Ethereum networks on Blockdaemon automatically start mining blocks -- it’s one more step we take care of automatically upon launch so you don’t have to. Your network is up, running and processing within minutes of launch.
