How to access the blockchain

The problem statement

Blockchains are in general of distributed nature. In ordert to access them and to potentially send or receive ATH there are two choices:

  • Run a gath node (easiest if You are anyway running an own server)
  • Access via Metamask (when You want to to access ATH via a website and not run a node)

Solution 1: deploy a node

Prerequisit

In order to spin off a node we will use a droplet from digital ocean http://www.digitalocean.com. When selecting a droplet, we will choose choose the following parameters:

  • 1 CPU
  • 2 GB RAM
  • 25 GB SSD space
  • floating IP

at the time of writing a droplet would cost approx x USD per month.
