Network Environments

There are 4 defined “networks”:

  • mainnet – the main public network.

  • STN (Scaling Test Network) – a public test network targeted at testing scaling.

  • testnet – a public test network, typically used for testing of software before release.

  • regnet – a private “regression” test network, meant for local testing.

Nodes from different networks can co-exist on the same physical network; each public network uses a different set of seed nodes (if any) and ports for communications.

The BSV server software defaults to mainnet.
