This section illustrates an easy way to set up a new blockchain network or manage an existing network in just a few clicks. Morpheus Labs Blockchain Ops saves the users from the weeks of hassle from setting up blockchain nodes so they can focus on the actual development work better.
Morpheus Labs SEED provides a list of available Blockchain networks that you can run. Initially, the following blockchain networks are available:
- Ethereum POA network
- HyperLedger Fabric
- Vechain Solo node
- Private NEM
These blockchain networks are selected to be available for the platform users based on the following considerations:
- Popularity of usage for enterprise blockchain applications or token assets projects
- Diversity of various blockchain technologies
More blockchains will be added in the future.
Let's dive into the blockchain protocol framework on Morpheus Labs SEED.
First, click on the left-side menu item "Blockchain Ops", and then click on the “+ New Blockchain” button on the right side to open the available blockchains you can run. This would return a list of available blockchains on the platform.
Select from the available blockchains. You can search and filter by tags and use the switch for grid/list view.
Morpheus Labs SEED offers multiple blockchain protocols. You can select the one that best suits your needs. Furthermore, you can search or filter by business need (eg. supply chain industry).
After selecting the blockchain click next. You will now choose a set-up mode: Ready-to-go or Advanced.
Ready-To-Go allows you to set up one network with predefined settings.
Advanced allows you to set up a network with options of choosing the number of nodes and other blockchain network settings.
Finally, enter a password if required and the prefix for your blockchain protocol, and click “Submit”.
The blockchain network is in “prepared” status. You will need to initialize the network.
The color of the status indicator icon provides a quick overview of the status. For greater detail, click on the info check (i) button.
The network can be initialized by clicking on the “Start” icon and waiting until the status indicator becomes green. That is the moment the network can be used.
Currently, the network exposes two different endpoints:
- Internal RPC endpoint. More information about how to use internal endpoints here: https://docs.morpheuslabs.io/v1.0/docs/configure-a-workspace#section-choose-the-blockchain-internal-end-point
- External RPC endpoint. Mainly used to securely connect your external tools (e.g. Wallets, Metamask). The external endpoint URL can be retrieved from the blockchain network information panel.
The information can be accessed by clicking on the "i" information button. The following will appear.
