Problem Definition

Deploy a test network


  • blockchain: geth X ropsten (maybe later rinkeby)
  • deployment: AWS


  • 100 raiden nodes
  • 3 ERC20 tokens
  • connect token networks over time
  • initiate transfers to other nodes
  • receive transfers from other nodes
  • leave token networks
  • test interwoven transfers (token/mediation/direct)
  • apart from some specific transfers it should have some transfer "background noise"

Existing Infrastructure

  • ansible AWS deployment scripts
  • (predictable) node address/account generation scripts
  • contract deployment scripts
  • token deployment & distribution scripts
  • simplified deployment by using raiden.AppImage (instead of installing python+dependencies)

Missing/incomplete infrastructure

  • public testnet connection with minimal sync overhead (trusted node(s))
  • public testnet ETH faucet/distribution for participant addresses/accounts
  • global scenario view
  • scenario playbook control via raiden restful API/RPC (this should replace which was a modded raiden app instance)
  • scenario assertions via raiden restful API/RPC ("node37 sent 5 and received 7 token Y, assert balance before settle")
  • scenario assertions via blockchain (assert token balance after settlement: "node37 balance of token Y has changed '-2'")
  • node error alarms (raiden processes should be monitored for livelyhood)
  • central log-file collection (logs are stored on AWS instances, but recovery may be tedious with current implementation)

Nice to have's

  • global scenario instrumentation (connection graph, transfer success/failure rate, path lengths)
