Rinkeby is a Proof of Authority public Ethereum test network Typically used by developers to test their decentralized applications.
Using kotal you can join Rinkeby test network simply by deploying this network manifest.
Kotal will create a blockchain network of a single node
name: node-1 that connects to and sync Rinkeby test network blockchain as indicated by the highlighted line
join: rinkeby. This node will use Go-Ethereum client as indicated by
You can fetch deployed Blockchain networks using
Lets add 3 more nodes -It's free 😄- 2 of them running Hyperledger Besu.
keep in mind that in multiple nodes network, the first node must be a boot node by setting
bootnode: true and adding a
Get the deployed network
let's update node-2 by enabling the HTTP RPC server and enabling only
net RPC API.
RPC HTTP server was enabled by
rpc: true and we enabled net API with
rpcAPI which accepts a list of RPC APIs to enable.
Let's call node-2 rpc, but first lets forward localhost:8545 calls to node-2 pod
In another terminal window call
node-2 reports that it has 3 peers: node-1, node-3 and node-4 😍
Finally you can delete the network and all its resources by
and Kubernetes garbage collector will delete all resources created by the controller.
