Tendermint is a tool to create blockchains with a byzantine-fault tolerance consensus mechanism. It provides all the underlying P2P functionalities to replicate deterministic state machines across a large number of computers.
Cosmos SDK is a framework for building secure blockchain applications on top of Tendermint. It provides composable modules as well as the necessary tools to interact with Tendermint.
# Public networks
The list of all available public networks on the network repository.
# Testnet 01
Currently, the only public MESG Network is a testnet called
It uses the token
atto and any address are prefixed with
Its explorer is available on: explorer.testnet.mesg.com
Its monitoring dashboard is available on: monitoring.testnet.mesg.com
You can get
atto token by using the faucet available on the explorer.
To start your engine on the testnet, execute the following command:
mesg-cli daemon:start --network mesg-testnet-01 --path $HOME/.mesg-testnet-01
Make sure to check the Engine's logs to see the synchronization progress as it can take a few hours.
# Local development network
By default the Engine creates a local development network called
This is a private network that contains only your data and is validated by your local engine.
To start the Engine on this network, simply run the
daemon:start command without specifying a network.
