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

at the time of writing a droplet would cost 5 USD per month. We will use LAMP UBUNTU 16.04 for X64 as a base system. It is important to use this one, as otherwise You need to enable SSH access and fiddle with the firewall settings via digital oceans console.

Installation

After installation digital ocean will send You the login information with the user root and then the password. You can facilitate the information by logging in via SSH

ssh root@Your_IP_ADDR

This will prompt for a password which You have received via mail. Once logged in You are placed into the /root directory.

Configuration

Testing
