What do these accounts refer to in ethereum? Particularly when setting up a private blockchain?

  • Please include more context. I would guess that "author" accounts are those that are allowed to create blocks (like in a Proof of Authority blockchain), and a "registrar" is way to look up which accounts are authors, and possibly other information about authors. – eth Aug 26 '17 at 7:55
  • Thank you but the point of the question is to get a general definition of the way these terms are used instead of specific context. The reason is because the individual ways they come up don't seem to be all the same (to me) and that is why I'm asking the question. What would be very helpful is if you could explain what you just wrote. for example: how does the registrar look up an account and what does it mean to look up an account? – stone.212 Aug 29 '17 at 1:23
  • Here are some references which may help someone (or yourself) write an answer: PoA github.com/ethereum/EIPs/issues/225 and ENS for registrars github.com/ethereum/ens – eth Aug 29 '17 at 10:16
  • What? Those definitely don't relate to my question. PoA? What are you talking about? My question has nothing to do with that. Also my question has nothing to do with the ENS. Both of those terms pre-date both of those concepts by a long time (in ethereum time at least) – stone.212 Aug 30 '17 at 9:18
