Deploy a network and node using Polygon Edge protocol with the SettleMint platform.
Edge is one of the most recent protocols released by Polygon. It is a modular and extensible framework for building private or public Ethereum compatible blockchain networks, sidechains and general scaling solutions. Its primary use is to bootstrap a new blockchain network while providing full compatibility with Ethereum smart contracts and transactions.
Polygon Edge is most often valued for its modularity and extensibility when building private or public networks. It is especially efficient in bridging permissioned networks to public networks, as well as offering the benefit of low gas fees.
The SettleMint platform offers a full integration of Polygon Edge into its platform, resulting in a suite of ready-to-use tools, frameworks, templates, and APIs, that will help developers speed up the development of their blockchain use case.
This series of videos will walk you through the main steps in the creation of a Polygon Edge application, from deployment to the integration of the application into off-chain, existing systems.
This demo will show you how to:
- Create a blockchain network by selecting Polygon Edge in the list of permissioned networks available on the platform and deploying an initial validating node.
- Select your deployment basic features: a deployment plan, a cloud provider (AWS, Google Cloud or Azure), a region and the resource pack that is most adapted to your project. Note that the resource pack can be scaled up or down at a later stage, depending on how your project evolves.
- Use easy consortium management that will enable you to smoothly onboard new members to the network and set up their permission level, such as the creation of validating nodes and the ability to also invite new members.
- Overview of the dashboards that will give you access to all the reports you need to monitor and adapt your configuration: basic statistics of the network, latest blocks mined, capacity used and the possibility to upscale or downscale the resource packs.
- Monitor Node details in a snapshot (name, features and history), including node identity (Mnemonic, Derivation path, Private key, public key and address) and node statistics (last block time, peers, pending transactions).
- Access connecting information easily with two secured endpoints, JSON-RPC and JSON-WS, with the ability to access and authenticate them.
- Request statistics such as: successful requests, invalid requests and success rate, both for the last 24 hours and the last 1 hour and details about the request rate and the 15 most recent requests.
