I'm performing a Monero (XMR) fork, but I'm not sure how to generate a genesis block. Could you help me? Investigate a little and talk about a print parameter in the deamon, but that parameter no longer exists. I am using version 0.11 of monero. Many thanks to all beforehand. Great greeting!! PS: I have been told that this topic may be duplicated with another. I need a step-by-step tutorial on how to create a new geneisis block or how to create a private blockchain, which I believe should be the same steps.

  • hi scoobybejesus....thank you for your answer, but that link not explain the steps to generate new genesis block. However, I saw that a few days ago and i couldn generate it. Do you know a tutorial about this topic? Commented Oct 13, 2017 at 16:15

After you change the GENESIS_TX of "cryptonote_config.h", input following commands in your terminal:

Creat node1:

./monerod --testnet --no-igd --hide-my-port --testnet-data-dir ~/test/node1 --p2p-bind-ip --add-exclusive-node --add-exclusive-node

Creat node2:

./monerod --testnet --testnet-p2p-bind-port 38080 --testnet-rpc-bind-port 38081 --no-igd --hide-my-port --testnet-data-dir ~/test/node2 --p2p-bind-ip --add-exclusive-node --add-exclusive-node

Creat node3:

./monerod --testnet --testnet-p2p-bind-port 48080 --testnet-rpc-bind-port 48081 --no-igd --hide-my-port --testnet-data-dir ~/test/node3 --p2p-bind-ip --add-exclusive-node --add-exclusive-node

Creat wallet1:

./monero-wallet-cli --testnet --trusted-daemon --generate-new-wallet ~/test/test1

Creat wallet2:

./monero-wallet-cli --testnet --daemon-port 38081 --trusted-daemon --generate-new-wallet ~/test/test2

Creat wallet3:

./monero-wallet-cli --testnet --daemon-port 48081 --trusted-daemon --generate-new-wallet ~/test/test3

More tips.

  • You say "After you change the GENESIS_TX of cryptonote_config.h" - but what do you change GENESIS_TX to???

  • Are all these nodes on the same server? Do you have to have 3 nodes?
