If I creat a ethereum private chain through geth. Is the Ethereum private chain a permissioned blockchain?
Could you add more details about how you create your private chain?– Mikhail VladimirovApr 10, 2019 at 13:09
I followed the guide: medium.com/mercuryprotocol/…– FrancescoApr 10, 2019 at 13:34
A PoW blockchain is typically permissionless. But you can add a permission layer above with whitelisting IPs. There are other blockchains that have an explicit authorization scheme like Quorum.– Ismael ♦Apr 10, 2019 at 16:57
Your blockchain is not permissioned, i.e. is uses the same rules as Mainnet. Though, in order to connect to it and use it, one will need to:
- Know IP/port of some of your nodes
- Be able to connect to your nodes
- Have your genesis block (probably it is possible to download it from node)
