1 Answer 1


There is an article in the documentation detailing how you can setup and run a network with multiple producers, voting, and resource consumption.


In this tutorial, we will start a number of nodeos nodes, point them to each other, and eventually vote on a set of producers. All of the nodeos nodes will run on the same server. In the following sections, we take various steps to prepare our candidate set of producers. We will use the naming convention accountnumXY, with XY chosen from the digits 1-5

Further, BlockOne published a Python script that performs the booting process for you.

  • Thank you but I can only make an account a block producer what if i want to have voting and make producers on my own Sep 3, 2018 at 9:03
  • @yashvadhvani you can vote once you deployed all the necessary contracts including eosio.system via the cleos system voteproducer prods subcommand, but i'm not sure what you mean to "make producers on my own" any account can be made a BP via the cleos system regproducer subcommand.
