There are two types of LACChain Networks orchestrated by LACNet: the Mainnets and the ProTestnets. At, present there is one Mainnet and two ProTestnets. Mainnets and ProTestnets have different permissioning processes. If you want to do some local testing before using our networks, you can also deploy a local LACChain network using our getting started guide.
The Mainnet Omega is the network recommended for all the initiatives in production. The Mainet Omega is membership-based. Writer nodes are required to pay a small membership to contribute to the legal and technical teams of the non-profit orquestrator LACNet. The Mainnet ensures resilience and accountability via Service Level Agreements called Adscription Contracts between LACNet and any entity operating a node in the Mainnet Omega LACChain Network. In order to deploy a nodes and them it permissioned in the Mainnet Omega, you need to follow these steps:
The LACChain Open ProTestnet is the network recommended for testing a solution before jumping into the Mainnet Omega. The Open ProTestnet is totally free, with no membership or transaction fees involved. Steps for an entity to deploy a node and get it permissioned in the Open ProTestnet, you need to follow these steps:
As a network intending for testing purposes, the ProTestnet does not provides the guarantees that the Mainnet does for initiatives that are registering data in production in the network. In case of any doubt, do not hesitate to write an email to [email protected].
This network was deprecated in October 7th, 2022. Those entities that were already using this network will be able to continue using it with the support of LACNet.
