I'm new to the Blockchain world, lacking experience and I'm looking for some assistance. I'm just syncing with ethereum network by using Geth and rinkeby network. by using this command:
geth --rinkeby --rpc --rpcapi="personal,eth,network,web3,net" --ipcpath "\\\\.\\pipe\\'\\\\.\\pipe\\geth.ipc"
but I cannot know what type of network I was syncing with? Is it private or public? and what are the differences between both, as we can see for all transactions detail for both?
