Create a private Ethereum network using Geth for your Blockchain solutions. In this course, you will learn how the Geth client can be used to create a private blockchain network using the Geth CLI and connect to it as a node. In this course, you will utilize the Geth console to access the various management application programming interfaces (APIs), such as personal, admin, and miner. Then work with the miner API to begin mining blocks and earning ether as part of mining rewards. Produce a private blockchain network using the Geth CLI and connect to it as a node. Recall the Geth commands to invoke transactions and the various APIs accessible from the console. Then invoke an Ether transfer transaction and add it to the blockchain by mining it. Once you complete this course, you will be familiar with the Geth client and will know different ways in which you can interact with an Ethereum network and setup and maintain not just an Ethereum node, but also an entire private Ethereum network.
