Contrasting local and public test blockchains

Minimum 500 words. 

In chapter 4, the author discusses different options for testing blockchain applications. For our course, we have chosen to use Ganache, a local test blockchain. Explore some of the advantages and disadvantages of using local and public blockchains to test apps and contrast the two options.  

  • Create a new thread (by the FIRST DUE DATE)
    • Contract the advantages and disadvantages of using local and public blockchains to test applications.
    • Explain how each advantage and disadvantage impacts blockchain application development, and why each is important to a successful blockchain implementation.

I’m interested to read what YOU learned from this week’s reading. Do NOT submit a research paper. Tell me what you think.

  • Think of three questions you’d like to ask other students and add these to the end of your thread.
    • The questions must be taken from material you read in Chapter 1 or 2, and each question should start a discussion topic.
    • You’re not trying to test each other, but you are trying to start a discussion.
  • Finally, go to three other students’ threads and post comments, answering at least one of their questions.
    • For EACH comment you post, use the 3CQ approach (described above.)
    • When someone asks you a question, answer it!

ALL threads and comments must be substantive AND ORIGINAL. (I’m looking for about a paragraph – not just a short answer.) Do not plagiarize!! Use your own words.

The discussions in this class exist to simulate face-to-face discussions. To reach that goal, we will adhere to the 3CQ model. After posting each thread, you will post at least 3 comments on other students’ threads, and each comment must conform to the 3CQ model (Compliment, Comment, Connect, Question). This model encourages discussions that extend class learning and participation.

Here is a description of the 3CQ model:

1.            Compliment – Start off positive. Compliment the person on something specific you have read or observed in the person’s blog post.  For example:

  • Thanks for sharing your thoughts! I really liked …

2.            Comment – Comment on something relevant and meaningful about what the person wrote. Be specific! Remember your comment might not always be agreement. You can “politely” disagree.  For example:   

  • I agree with you about …
  • I respect your opinion, but I think …

3.            Connect – Connect with something the person wrote (Text-to-Self, Text-to-Text, Text-to-World). Explain your connection with details giving your audience a clear idea of what you’re talking about by using sensory details.   For example:

  • I can connect with you about …
  • I once read a story about …
  • I had the same thing happen to me…

4.            Question – Ask a specific question about something written or the writer. Keep the conversation going!
