Extension block testnet (extnet) #2
I've set up an early testnet for extension blocks (extnet) running on bcoin.
Parameters and genesis block reside in: https://github.com/bcoin-org/bcoin-extension-blocks/blob/extblk/lib/protocol/networks.js#L782
This is still an early iteration of the extension block ruleset. Some of the rules implemented only reside in issues/prs as of right now. They will likely be changed in the near future (i.e. extnet2).
Differences from the current spec
Note: Please attempt to break the testnet. That's what it is meant for.
$ git clone git://github.com/bcoin-org/bcoin-extension-blocks.git $ cd bcoin-extension-blocks $ git checkout extblk $ npm install $ export BCOIN_NETWORK=extnet $ ./bin/bcoin
Note: ensure you have the required dependencies listed on the bcoin wiki.
See the wiki for more info.
The CPU miner is always available via the RPC:
$ ./bin/bcoin rpc generatetoaddress 1 [addr]
Stratum mining is available via bcoin-stratum. Make sure it is installed in a reachable node_modules directory and run bcoin with:
$ mkdir -p ~/.bcoin/extnet/stratum/shares # temporary fix for an issue $ ./bin/bcoin -n extnet --plugins bcoin-stratum --coinbase-address [address]
Note: if a stratum server respects GBT's
Creating an extblk account
$ ./bin/bcoin wallet account create foo --witness # Should return JSON containing your extblk receive addr. # If you need to see it again, run: # $ ./bin/bcoin wallet account get foo
$ ./bin/bcoin wallet history $ ./bin/bcoin wallet history --account=foo
Sending from extblk account
$ ./bin/bcoin wallet send [address] [value] --account=foo
Extra verbose block output
$ ./bin/bcoin rpc getblockbyheight [number] true true
