if you clone another cryptocurrency and generate a new genesis block, starting a new coin with balance of zero, how should you put the first amount of money into the network. For example, I want my currency starts with 1000 coins.

    Are you expecting to have a balance? Do you actually own any coins in this wallet? If so, then you will need to sync the blockchain in order to see it - this may take a while. You have no connections - is your Internet link up? If you don't own any coins, then of course you don't have a balance - you'll have to buy some. – Nate Eldredge Jan 20 '18 at 15:58
  • Hi Nate. thanks for responds, sorry i'm newbie so i think if i compile new crypto using litecoin then i can add balance to new coin i've created. so how to sync the blockchain ? – Devel BTC Jan 20 '18 at 16:18
  • Why not just mine it, if the genesis block has already been created? – Highly Irregular Jan 31 '18 at 10:07
  • is there any other way than mining? – Devel BTC Jan 31 '18 at 10:24
  • You're in control of the code. If you write code that gives a starting balance for a particular address I don't see why it can't be done. It is just software! – Highly Irregular Feb 1 '18 at 3:32
