different options for testing blockchain applications. For our course, we have chosen to use Ganache, a local test blockchain. Explore some of the advantages and disadvantages of using local and public blockchains to test apps and contrast the two options.
While using a public blockchain, companies do not need any intermediary. The other advantage of using public blockchain lies in its security, transparency, and decentralized identity. The problem with a public blockchain is that it has speed issues when used to test applications. A public blockchain is preferable to local ones because it can be used by various entities without the verification of a third party. Local blockchain reduces transaction costs and data redundancies during testing.
