After mining some blocks as premining and once POS is started, is it possible to stop the chain altogether (turning off all the nodes) and restart at some point in near future?

From the technical point of view, will it disturb things related to stake modifier if some PoS blocks are also mined?

Thank you.


Why would you want to "stop the chain" and resume it later? Not saying is wrong, just curious..

A blockchain always evolves and new transactions gets added etc... The only way you can stop this probably yeah is to freeze/turn off ALL the nodes, miners etc..

I'm not sure how that will look but you will have a block mined in year A, and then the next block will be mined in year B.

But again, not sure what your goal is
