The Qwertycoin testnet is your sandbox where the sustainability of your coin and network can be put to test before the launch of a major update. Generally, you wouldn't want to roll out a feature, which might jeopardize your user's experience or your network's health.
Qwertycoin testnet tool ignores the real network by skipping its checkpoints and peer lists. It additionally generates a brand new genesis block on startup. By doing so you create a new blockchain for your network which can be used for testing purposes. This tool can even be helpful for pool homeowners deploying a brand new feature associated with mining since their testnet does not need to vie with external miners for the blocks during testing.
- Post binaries compilation process.
First of all, you should start the daemon with the
./qwertycoind --testnet --data-dir=new/path/to/blockchain
--testnetargument forces daemon to start a new testing network.
--data-dirargument ought to diverge from the default folder so the testnet does not interfere with the important network's blockchain and peer pools. When you launch a brand new testnet, be sure to provide it with a new folder.
- Launching a testnet simplewallet is easy.
It needs solely the
--testnetargument to attach to the testnet daemon:
- In case you need to create a testnet that consists of more than 1 node, you should connect each of the new daemons to the previously launched testnet through the
./qwertycoind --testnet --data-dir=new/path/to/blockchain --add-exclusive-node=testnet.node.ip:port
