How to Clone Ethereum, and What Ethereum Offers

I recently Created these 2 guides to show everyone how to create CryptoNotes, Coins using the CryptoNight Algorithm.

But I found out that it is actually easier to create an Ethereum Fork than it is to create a CryptoNote.  So here is how to Clone Ethereum. Using this 2 Part Guide, you can Clone Ethereum using Linux, even if you have never used Cryptocurrency before in your life, as long as you can copy and paste into the Linux command line.

Part 1

sudo apt-get install software-properties-common
sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:ethereum/ethereum
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ethereum

If you want to stay on the bleeding edge, install the ethereum-unstable package instead.

After installing, run geth account new to create an account on your node.

You should now be able to run


and connect to the network.

Make sure to check the different options and commands with geth --help

Download this and put it in a folder

python --extradata hash_for_#1028201_goes_here > genesis_block.json

python --extradata 0x11bbe8db4e347b4e8c937c1c8370e4b5ed33adb3db69cbdb7a38e1e50b1b82fa > genesis_block.json

If you can get through the errors there, then go here:

Part 2
If not, now you have everything you need to do it this way

mkdir my-eth-chain
cd my-eth-chain

gedit myGenesis.json

put this in that file
   "config": {
      "chainId": 1994,
      "homesteadBlock": 0,
      "eip155Block": 0,
      "eip158Block": 0,
      "byzantiumBlock": 0
   "difficulty": "400",
   "gasLimit": "2000000",
   "alloc": {
      "7b684d27167d208c66584ece7f09d8bc8f86ffff": {
          "balance": "100000000000000000000000"
      "ae13d41d66af28380c7af6d825ab557eb271ffff": {
          "balance": "120000000000000000000000"

geth --datadir ./myDataDir init ./myGenesis.json

geth --datadir ./myDataDir --networkid 1114 console 2>> myEth.log

(CHANGE THE 1114 to something else)

    Open another terminal window

    cd to my-eth-chain

    Type tail -f myEth2.log

    In the geth JavaScript console of your 1st peer (back to the other terminal window), type:

> personal.newAccount("</p> <p>")

> eth.coinbase

Check your balance with
> eth.getBalance(eth.coinbase)
> miner.start()

Then go here:

bootnode --genkey=boot.key
bootnode --nodekey=boot.key

To get your Public URL for everyone

geth --datadir path/to/custom/data/folder --networkid 15 --bootnodes
$ geth
> --mine --minerthreads=1 --etherbase=0x0000000000000000000000000000000000000000

And apparently, the way to get consensus is to have your Genesis.json  file put into your Ethereum Wallet. And it will turn the old Wallet into  a Wallet for your Blockchain.

Once you have done that, now you have some experience, so go here

dApps- Decentralized Apps

I just thought about this, in the World of Bitcoin and Ethereum and ICOs and all that, most people miss this part. So what you do in this Blockchain Tutorial is a Clone of what Etheruem offers, but it is a New Network. You can create Apps on it, and you may think "Ok, so?". And that is where you might have heard of some things that have happened, but not understood what it meant.

There is an Ethereum App called CryptoKitties

Ethereum, and your Ethereum Clone, allows you to create Smart Contracts, that work like Currencies, but have an underlying Operation they have to Follow (the Contract). These smart Contracts allow you to do things like create Animals that can be Bred and Traded, or Fuel for actions in different games that can be lost or gained between players.

You can even create an Exchange on the Ethereum Blockchain that allows you to trade Smart Contract Tokens

Here are more dApps

And dApps can be used on the Ethereum Mist Network
