Networks

By default Nethermind launches with mainnet network configuration but you can sync any of the below networks by adding a command line switch:

--config name_of_the_network

Network name can be any of the following

  • mainnet
  • rinkeby
  • goerli
  • ropsten

Mainnet

This is the main public Ethereum network secured by the ethash PoW algorithm.

Nethermind.Runner --config mainnet

Görli (goerli)

This is a Clique-PoA based testnet supported by all major clients. It has a 15 seconds delay between blocks that are sealed by Goerli validators.

Nethermind.Runner --config goerli

Ropsten

This is a test network secured by ethash PoW algorithm which resembles mainnet most closely but is prone to hashrate-based attacks.

Nethermind.Runner --config ropsten

Rinkeby

This is a Clique-PoA based testnet supported by Geth and Nethermind. It has a 15 seconds delay between blocks.

Nethermind.Runner --config rinkeby
