MultiChain is an open-source platform for building private blockchain applications. It aims to remove perceived problems associated with bitcoin by limitting the visibility of the ledger and allowing institutions to set controls on transactions as well as forego distributed mining.
In this instructor-led, live training, participants will learn how to use MultiChain to set up a private blockchain and develop a sample application.
By the end of this training, participants will be able to:
- Install and use the tools needed for MultiChain development.
- Create, connect, configure and use their own private Blockchain.
- Create an initial node, start the genesis block, and enable private mining using other nodes in the network.
- Transact native assets, enable and control mining, and install MultiChain Explorer and webDemo.
- Use API commands to control MultiChain and handle error codes and messages.
- Customize the runtime parameters that affect the behavior of individual nodes.
- Create a consensual governance model for the blockchain.
- Install and use popular bitcoin wallets and libraries for connecting to a MultiChain blockchain.
