Could someone please explain the below,

I am developing a DAPP which uses ERC20 tokens that already deployed in the mainnet. In order to mine the transactions for these ERC20 tokens, How I can use the ethereum node..?, I am planing to mine the transactions using my own ethereum node!! is it possible..? Suggestions are welcome.

Theoretically, sure it's possible. But you still need a large amount of mining power. This is because, even if you're only mining your own transactions, they still have to be sealed in a block. For the block to be added to the ethereum chain, a lot of mining power is required.

  • I am not familiar with Infura, Even if i use infura also I need to provide gas right.. ? Commented Jun 26, 2018 at 8:08
  • Infura will just propagate your transaction into the network, so that miners can include them in blocks. The miners will only do that if they get paid in gas
