⚠️WARNING: software is still in development. It is not yet meant for use in production. Standard network is disabled at the moment.
You can run the chain easily on your computer to play with the software already.
First step is to launch a daemon from your console:
goldchaind --network devnet --no-bootstrap -Mgctwbe
the above launches a goldchain daemon on devnet, using no bootstrap (meaning it doesn't try to connect to bootstrap nodes or wait for such nodes to know if you're sync or not), enabling also the explorer module.
Once you have that you can recover the genesis wallet so you can start creating blocks and have money to spend:
goldchainc wallet recover --plain \ --seed "carbon boss inject cover mountain fetch fiber fit tornado cloth wing dinosaur proof joy intact fabric thumb rebel borrow poet chair network expire else"
As this wallet is recovered as a plain wallet it does not have to be unlocked and is ready for use:
$ goldchainc wallet Wallet status: Encrypted, Unlocked Confirmed Balance: 100006530 GFT Locked Balance: 0 GFT Unconfirmed Delta: + 0 GFT BlockStakes: 3000 BS
Please consult the
--help menus of the
goldchainc command and all its subcommands for more information on how to use the CLI.
Using multiple wallets on the same machine
goldchaind daemon doesn't allow multiple wallets for the time being.
In order to have multiple wallets running on the same machine you therefore need
to run multiple
goldchaind daemons, with each daemon:
- using a unique persistent directory (either by starting each daemon from a different directory or
by explicitly setting it using the
- exposing itself using a unique port.
These different can manually be connected to one another using the
goldchainc gateway connect localhost:[port]command.
Authorized Address Management
Please consult the Rivine documentation about the Auth Coin Tx Extension for more information about this feature and its transactions: https://github.com/threefoldtech/rivine/blob/master/extensions/authcointx/README.md
Authorization of an address using the CLI
To authorize and deauthorize addresses you can use the following command to create the transaction:
goldchainc wallet authcoin authaddresses \ -e 0175e1a00548730d67ec1b46bc0fe469e7b9888cfab3c08548aaf900afaa52564520c537d665ca -e 01752fb52375a6b0521890673a9a901fce6c88e3e272613bf5eb0c467b064e773b6ce4c54a2931 -d 017600553bc08234e99d0af79d775ad2da62ec7e0db51942dfa6861ea0b2bfd788a65c77e370d5
The above command authorizes the first 2 addresses using the shorthand alternative
-e for the flag
while it deauthorizes the last address (
using the shorthand alternative
-d for the flag
This command returns a freshly created transaction in JSON format which still has to be signed and submitted using other wallet CLI commands. You can do it all in one step using shell piping:
goldchainc wallet send transaction "$(goldchainc wallet sign "$(goldchainc wallet authcoin authaddresses -e 0175e1a00548730d67ec1b46bc0fe469e7b9888cfab3c08548aaf900afaa52564520c537d665ca)")"
Transfer authorization powers
To transfer authorization power from the current condition to the new one, the following command can be executed:
goldchainc wallet send transaction "$(goldchainc wallet sign "$(goldchainc wallet authcoin updatecondition 0175e1a00548730d67ec1b46bc0fe469e7b9888cfab3c08548aaf900afaa52564520c537d665ca)")"
In order to transfer to a multi-signature multiple addresses can be defined (and optionally a sig count):
goldchainc wallet send transaction "$(goldchainc wallet sign "$(goldchainc wallet authcoin updatecondition 0175e1a00548730d67ec1b46bc0fe469e7b9888cfab3c08548aaf900afaa52564520c537d665ca 01752fb52375a6b0521890673a9a901fce6c88e3e272613bf5eb0c467b064e773b6ce4c54a2931 1)")"
Explore authorization conditions and addresses
Please consult the
--help menu of the following explore command for more information
on how to explore the active (or at a certain block height) auth condition and authorization state (boolean) of an address:
goldchainc explore authcoin --help
Please consult the Rivine documentation about the Minting Extension for more information about this feature and its transactions: https://github.com/threefoldtech/rivine/blob/master/extensions/minting/readme.md
Coin minting works similarly to how to the authorized address management feature works.
Please consult the
--help menu of the relevant commands using the following commands:
- Create a Minter Definition Transaction:
goldchainc wallet create minterdefinitiontransaction --help
- Create a Coin Creation Transaction:
goldchainc wallet create coincreationtransaction --help
- Explore the mint condition currently active or at a given block height:
goldchainc explore mintcondition --help
