Will he helpful if anybody can guide be on any documentation on how to create a permissioned blockchain on docker


For a permissioned blockchain you normally don't want to use proof-of-work, so you don't want to run native Geth. You might be interested in Eris (new name Monax): They provide a permissioned blockchain based on Tendermint, which assumes identifed validators with known public keys. Everything they do is Docker-based out-of-the-box.

  • Thanx , Yeah i have tried tendermint . But i want to use smart contracts . Does Eris support it . – Raj Dec 6 '16 at 11:56

    Yes, Eris uses the EVM, so contracts that work in Ethereum will work in Eris. You can write your contracts in Solidity and they work just the same. The JavaScript libraries you use to talk to it are annoyingly subtly different to the standard Ethereum web3.js, but their equivalent has basically the same functionality. – Edmund Edgar Dec 6 '16 at 12:47
  • Edmund , Is their any way we add add peer . I don't see this functionality in eris – Raj Dec 12 '16 at 11:40
  • Yes, you either connect them all to the same bootstrap node or connect them to each other individually. I'm not sure whether you have to do it in the config files or whether you can also do it from the console like Geth. – Edmund Edgar Dec 12 '16 at 12:51
