Go implementation of Waves Node, libraries and tools for Waves blockchain.

Waves Node

It is possible to run Waves Node on Linux, macOS or Windows. Please, download an appropriate binary file from Releases page.

You can either synchronize a node over network or import a downloaded blockchain file.

How to import blockchain from file

Blockchain files are available on MainNet, TestNet StageNet download pages.

Import could be done as follows:

  1. Download a blockchain file
  2. Download the importer utility from Releases
  3. Run the command, put the path to the blockchain file and node's state directory as parameters. The third parameter is the number of blocks to import, it should be less than a desired height by one.
./importer -blockchain-path [path to blockchain file] -data-path [path to node state directory] -blocks-number [height - 1]

Import may take a few hours, after which you can run the node as described in next section.

Please note that the Go Node has its own state storage structure that is incompatible with Scala Node.

How to run the node

Run the node as follows:

  1. Download a suitable node's binary file from Releases
  2. Run the command, if required, put the path to the node's state directory.
./node -state-path [path to node state directory]

By default, the node is run as a MainNet node. To run a TestNet node put testnet, as a blockchain type. You may also enter a list of comma separated peers' addresses (Optional):

./node -state-path [path to node state directory] -blockchain-type testnet

How to set block generation

Go Node has two parameters which allow the loading of private keys from a wallet file.

-wallet-path [path to wallet file]
-wallet-password [password string]

For example:

./node -state-path ~/gowaves-testnet/ -blockchain-type testnet -wallet-path ~/testnet.wallet -wallet-password 'some super secret password' 

Once the parameters were provided, the node would try loading and using private keys to generate blocks.

How to create a wallet file

To create a wallet file use the wallet utility. Please download a suitable version of the wallet utility from the Releases page. The following command will add a seed to the wallet file:

./wallet add -w [path to the wallet file]

The utility would ask for a seed phrase and a password to encrypt the new wallet file. If a wallet file does not exist, the file will be created.

It is possible to provide not only a seed phrase, but also a Base58 encoded seed in a compatible with waves.exchange application format. To do so add -b flag:

./wallet add -w [path to the wallet file] -b

Enter the string of a Base58 encoded seed (It will be asked).

To list the seed, run the next command and provide the password.

./wallet show -w [path to the wallet file]

Client library examples

Create sender's public key from BASE58 string:

   sender, err := crypto.NewPublicKeyFromBase58("<your-public-key>")
   if err != nil {
       panic(err)
   }

Create sender's private key from BASE58 string:

    sk, err := crypto.NewSecretKeyFromBase58("<your-private-key>")
    if err != nil {
        panic(err)
    }

Create script's address:

    a, err := proto.NewAddressFromString("<script's address")
    if err != nil {
        panic(err)
    }

Create Function Call that will be passed to the script:

    fc := proto.FunctionCall{
        Name: "foo",
        Arguments: proto.Arguments{
            proto.IntegerArgument{
                Value: 12345,
            },
            proto.BooleanArgument{
                Value: true,
            },
        },
    }

New InvokeScript Transaction:

    tx, err := proto.NewUnsignedInvokeScriptV1('T', sender, a, fc, proto.ScriptPayments{}, waves, 500000, uint64(ts))
    if err != nil {
        panic(err)
    }

Sign the transaction with the private key:

    err = tx.Sign(sk)

Create new HTTP client to send the transaction to public TestNet nodes:

    client, err := client.NewClient(client.Options{BaseUrl: "https://testnodes.wavesnodes.com", Client: &http.Client{}})
    if err != nil {
        panic(err)
    }

Send the transaction to the network:

    _, err = client.Transactions.Broadcast(ctx, tx)
    if err != nil {
        panic(err)
    }

5 Blockchain Applications That Have Transformed the World of Technology

The blockchain is the decentralized database of the blocks of information, which gets recorded in the chain format and linked in a secured crypto graphical manner. This technology ensures proper safety of the data due to its secure nature, and it totally changes how people carry out transactions. It also brings about a faster and secure process of validating information needed to establish reliability.

Though blockchain technology came into the market to carry out only digital transactions, it is now used in various industries like supply chain, finance, health care, and many more.

The blockchain technology has made its position in mobile app development as well. Blockchain applications are transparent and accountable. From getting easy access to medical records and buying insurance, you can see blockchain applications everywhere.

Here are some of the areas where you can see the use of blockchain applications and how they have changed various industries.

1. Ripple

Ripple is useful for increasing banking transactions. The implementation of blockchain technology in the financial sector is much more profound than any other sector. Ripple proves this. It is one of the greatest tools to record and complete financial transactions.

It develops a large network despite strict physical boundaries. As there is no such third-party involvement present, the cost of these transactions is lower than usual. At the same time, the network also remains transparent and quite secured.

It is normally seen that financial transactions that happen globally are

error-prone and take a lot of time. In addition to this, when the transaction

fees and exchange rates get added up, the total cost usually gets high.

However, Ripple offers real-time international transactions without spending too much money. It has the network of about 200+ institutions making the process affordable, secure, and fast for all sorts of international transactions.

2. Etherisc

This blockchain application helps in automating flight insurance. Insurance is another area where blockchain is gaining popularity. Through this application, insurers can make smart contracts rather than getting involved in the traditional contracts that are usually complex. Etherisc is the blockchain application that helps customers buy flight insurance. If the flight gets canceled or delayed, they do not have to wait for months to get the payment back. This application ensures an on-time payout.
