Python Blockchain - Adding Genesis Block


Advertisements

Adding a block to the blockchain involves appending the created block to our TPCoins list.

TPCoins.append (block0)

Note that unlike the rest of the blocks in the system, the genesis block contains only one transaction which is initiated by the originator of the TPCoins system. Now, you will dump the contents of the blockchain by calling our global function dump_blockchain

dump_blockchain(TPCoins)

When you execute this function, you will see the following output −

Number of blocks in the chain: 1
block # 0
sender: Genesis

At this point the blockchain system is ready to use. We will now enable the interested clients to become miners by providing them a mining functionality.
