This question already has an answer here:
So I've had huge problem to get the Ethereum network to sync. I've tried several times, even on different computers. Trying to remove the old DB and run "geth --fast cache=1024". Anyhow, my current sync has stopped a few hundred blocks from the finish line and it just keeps downloading chain structure.
I'd like to deploy a contract and I don't think I can use https://remix.ethereum.org/ since I need to use the Open Zeppelin Framework. Is it possible to deploy contracts without the network being synced?
