Platform installation and usage

General platform configuration: cryptography

The type and parameters of the cryptographic algorithm used in the blockchain are set in the crypto section of the node configuration file. The crypto section is used to initialize the cryptography before reading the complete node configuration file.

crypto {
  type = WAVES
  • typecryptography type; use the WAVES value for Waves cryptography algorithms. If the waves-crypto parameter is present in the configuration file and is set to yes, then the type parameter is assigned the WAVES value;


The node.waves-crypto field with yes and no values is still supported, but it is not planned to use it in the platform future versions. Instead, the type field in the crypto section will be used.
