I am new to EOSIO, I leart that NETWORK, CPU and RAM can be purchased by EOS coin. The question is if I build a private blockchain and do I still need EOS coin to purchase these resources?

No. A private eosio blockchain will have it's own token to use for resource allocation.

You can check more information on the developers documentation here: https://developers.eos.io/

  • haha, thanks my friend. The link I am after is the part which clearly addressing private eosio blockchain is not using formal eos coin. I have looked through developers.eos.io but did not see that part.
