I need to start a new mainnet network and start mining without voices. How can I do that?

I do not quite understand how testnet and mainnet work, but I know for sure that I need to run mainnet on my genesis separately from the main. My mining does not work, and I do not know how to run it.

  • Please add some more information, what are you trying to accomplish and why? What do you mean without voices? And when you say 'mainnet' do you mean a single node testnet or is this a network you'd like other Block Producers to be apart of? Jun 17, 2018 at 10:45
  • I added additional information. I need all the mainnet startup commands with mining

Looks like you're trying to run a single node test net. Try not to confuse it with the main net as that's the popular EOSIO based Blockchain with Block Producers like EOS New York or Genereos.

To start your own single node test net you're best off reading the docs found here at https://developers.eos.io/eosio-nodeos/docs/ I highly recommend using the Docker quickstart as you'll be able to re-create new blockchains very easily.

Also Mining is done on Proof of Work consensus, not Delegated Proof of Stake, therefore, Mining does not exist on EOSIO based chains.

  • I correctly understand that I can not extract blocks in mainnet. Is there information where this restriction is written in the code to remove?

  • What do you mean by 'extract' blocks? Like remove them? Jun 17, 2018 at 12:29
  • Delete the rules under which I can extract blocks in mainnet I want to run the coins in a separate network and try to understand how I can do it. You can call it fork but without changing the genesis of the block. I also want to create such names as eosio and eos.token

  • I think you're asking this: is there a way to fork the mainnet in a way that gives your nodes the ability to produce and gives you control over the eosio account. Jun 17, 2018 at 12:49

    Yes. The community's not ready for that information. The current set of community-written web clients trust arbitrary JSON RPC endpoints without verification. If I make an easy guide to forks then scammers will use it to trick web clients. Jun 17, 2018 at 13:45
