I'm just getting started with this. I started by reading this collection of articles:
The syntax they suggested for creating a private blockchain didn't work so I tried every combination I could think of. Eventually I tried the following:
geth init CustomGenesis.json --datadir .ACPrivateChain
Here's how I configured my install:
- I installed geth in c:\program files\geth.
- I created a genesis.json file and put it in this folder.
- I created a subfolder named 'ACPrivateChain'.
When I run the command, I get:
"Fatal: invalid genesis file: invalid character '/' looking for beginning of object key string"
Can someone help with the right syntax for Windows?
