Join Drew Falkman for an in-depth discussion in this video Testnet/Ropsten and mainnet deployment, part 1, part of Ethereum: Building Blockchain Decentralized Apps (DApps).
- [Drew] Once you've tested your smart contract locally,…you're going to want to test out your contract on the testnet,…and eventually, you're going to want to deploy this out…to the Ethereum mainnet.…Now the good thing is, in order to do both,…you're going to install Geth.…The only difference is how you run Geth.…If you run Geth and point it to a testnet,…it's going to put everything and sync everything…up against the testnet.…If you point it to the mainnet, it's going to deploy.…So once you know how to do one, you know how to do both.…If you look at the Command Line Options…for Go Ethereum or Geth,…you can scroll down and see that we have a network ID…in which case, you specify an identifier for a network…or you can flag testnet or Rinkeby,…depending on which testnet you want to use.…
We're going to go ahead and use the Ropsten testnet,…which seems to be the most popular,…and that we're going to use the testnet flag.…So let's go ahead and go to our Command Line interface,…and let's first create an account,…
