I have installed ethereum and geth (1.9). It is running and
the result is:
> Geth > Version: 1.9.5-stable > Git Commit: a1c09b93871dd3770adffb177086abda1b2ff3af > Git Commit Date: 20190920 > Architecture: amd64 > Protocol Versions:  > Network Id: 1 > Go Version: go1.13 > Operating System: darwin > GOPATH= > GOROOT=/Users/travis/.gimme/versions/go1.13.darwin.amd64
I also see the size of the chaindata growing (under ~/Library/Ethereum).
However, opening a console (by
geth attach) and asking:
Is there a way the extract data from the mainnet like accounts, blocks, transactions etc. directly by using geth (no 3rd party tools)?
