geth user here. I'm trying to do some analysis on transactions on the mainnet and for that I need all the blocks since the beginning of time. When I just ran
geth with no parameters, it looks like it is starting from only block 3280013 but I want it to start from block 1:
EDIT: I am looking for clarification of what startingBlock means, not how to download the whole blockchain and how
--fast helps. This is not a duplicate.
Will it still work and will I get block data from the beginning of time?
