Setup new Cryptonote blockchain

Let’s walk through the process of creating a configuration file for a new private blockchain.

Creating simplewallet addresses

This step is only required for blockchains has premined coins

$ ./simplewallet --config-file configs/dashcoin.conf --generate-new-wallet MY.wallet --password PASSWORD

config path exist
forknote wallet v1.0.9.1.662()
Sync from timestamp: 1455950318
Error: wallet failed to connect to daemon (http://localhost:29081).
Generated new wallet: D9CTMkRfsJ594cuvX2pGXNWMFK5ARwxPN1x7bFC5wY5XTZxf12LjWUK5QkMVeSkD6gT532FepdaohRYkt99e9gdF6hyrUgx

**********************************************************************
Your wallet has been generated.
Use "help" command to see the list of available commands.
Always use "exit" command when closing simplewallet to save
current session's state. Otherwise, you will possibly need to synchronize 
your wallet again. Your wallet key is NOT under risk anyway.
**********************************************************************

At this line is your wallet address: Generated new wallet: D9CTMkRfsJ594cuvX2pGXNWMFK5ARwxPN1x7bFC5wY5XTZxf12LjWUK5QkMVeSkD6gT532FepdaohRYkt99e9gdF6hyrUgx

Caution: Don’t forget to backup the wallets
Notice: You can also use walletd or another wallet to create an address

Creating configuration file

Create the configuration file of your coin by using our configuration form.

Save the resulted configuration in the configs folder of Forknote.

Example on Linux/Mac:

$ cat >configs/fakecoin.conf 

BYTECOIN_NETWORK=10101010-1010-1010-1010-101010101010
CRYPTONOTE_DISPLAY_DECIMAL_POINT=12
CRYPTONOTE_NAME=fakecoin
CRYPTONOTE_PUBLIC_ADDRESS_BASE58_PREFIX=86
GENESIS_COINBASE_TX_HEX=010a01ff0001ffffffffffff0f029b2e4c0271c0b42e7c53291a94d1c0cbff8883f8024f5142ee494ffbbd08807121013c086a48c15fb637a96991bc6d53caf77068b5ba6eeb3c82357228c49790584a
P2P_STAT_TRUSTED_PUB_KEY=

UPGRADE_HEIGHT_V2=1
UPGRADE_HEIGHT_V3=2

p2p-bind-port=8080
rpc-bind-port=8081

seed-node=127.0.0.1:8080

Check is the configuration file working properly by:

$ ./forknoted --config-file configs/fakecoin.conf

Notice: Be careful when you test different configurations with the same CRYPTONOTE_NAME. You may need to delete the blockchain folder to avoid conflict.
Example OSX/Linux: ~/.fakecoin/
Example Windows: C:\Users\%user_name%\AppData\Roaming\fakecoin\

Adding seed nodes

After you have all set in the configuration file, you can start the seed nodes.

We recommend you use Digital Ocean or Vultr. The 5$ or 10$ option should be enough for most of the cases. You can use our guide about seed node creation to get started fast.

After you know the IP of the VPS, you have to add seed-node to your configuration file.

seed-node=1.1.1.1:8080

Notice: Don’t forget to delete the line seed-node=127.0.0.1:xxxxx
