Follow the instructions in Setup and Installation to build and install the Theta Blockchain node software. Make sure you are compiling the latest
privatenet branch, as mentioned in the special notes. Next, execute the following commands to setup the environment.
cp -r ./integration/privatenet ../privatenet
cp -r ./integration/privatenet/thetacli/* ~/.thetacli/
chmod 700 ~/.thetacli/keys/encrypted
And then, use the following commands to launch a private net with a single validator node.
theta start --config=../privatenet/node
When the prompt asks for password, simply enter
qwertyuiop. Note that this simple password was just for demo purpose for the local private net. Please use a strong password when you set up your nodes for the Theta mainnet.
Note: Alternatively, you can pass in the password with the
theta start --config=../privatenet/node --password=qwertyuiop
