I'm currently working on my bachelor thesis in which I have to analyze which are the scalability issues the bitcoin protocol has and try to see how it react changing different parameters ( for example the block size ecc... ). I have downloaded the entire blockchain and I'm currently setuping a private regtest network. I also have been asked to try to use the real transactions up to next week, "load" them in my regtest mode and start testing on this environment. Is this possible? I mean, is there a way to import the real bitcoin transactions on the blockchain into a private blockchain? Do you know any other solution/advice that could help me perform this task? Moreover, if you know any interesting article/paper about scalability and blockchain would be really useful. Thanks everyone! :)

  • you can perform all analysys on testnet chain. i do not see any benefits running private blockchain in your case.

  • But if I use the testnet chain I can really modify the protocol itself, can I?

  • I think you do not have enough knowledge to modify anything in protocol. Start with easy tasks.
