I'd like to make a fork of Bitcoin, since it's the new trend ;)
The first thing I did was to create a docker image of ubuntu with all the dependencies, then I wanted to run the core software- but the first thing it did after I built it and booted it up was start trying to connect itself to the real-world bitcoin network- not what I want!
What I'd like to do is define my own network, that I can just run on some machines that are under my own personal control- pass around coins- all the typical stuff- check out the wallet- really basic
but I'm at a loss for how to do that.
I've been told that I need to modify
chainparams.cpp, is it so? If yes, then what do I need to do to it?
Is that the only thing I need to change? if there are other things what are they?
