As there are many terms to such a large project like Elastos and the Cyber Republic, we’ve decided to build a growing glossary of terms that can help the less technical understand better what the tech means and the impact it could have. This week we’re focusing on Elastos Private Net, featured in KP’s recent video:
Term: Elastos Private Net
A complete and private developer environment of the Elastos blockchain where development can begin locally (or on the cloud) without having to rely on Elastos Foundation or testnet. These mainchain and sidechain nodes run on docker containers.
It’s a private network. What’s so hard to understand? Test apps locally, do it without relying on anyone else (ie, if the Elastos Foundation’s testnet is broken or updating), bug test and even have other people use the app. Once ready, launch it on the main net. That’s all there is to it. Now get crackin’, devs. It’s so simple!
