Is it possible to artificially delete a given block from local chain database without causing any problems? for example, how could I delete the latest block from my local eth node, and resync newly generated blocks from other nodes?
If no known RPCs are available, could I write myself an API to do a delete block operation? As far as I can see, the core.blockchain.go has supported a SetHead function with the following comments:
// SetHead rewinds the local chain to a new head. In the case of headers, everything
// above the new head will be deleted and the new one set. In the case of blocks
// though, the head may be further rewound if block bodies are missing (non-archive
// nodes after a fast sync).
dose that mean I can use this method to reset my local chain head? If so, what will happen to the blocks after this chain head? will these blocks be deleted?
Thanks for your help!
