What is WorldLand?

WorldLand is WorldLand's official node client. This is a fork of ethereum/go-ethereum, the official node client for Ethereum.

Geth (go-Ethereum) is a Go implementation of Ethereum. It is one of the original and most popular Ethereum clients.

When WorldLand runs, the computer acts as a Worldland node and connects to the Worldland network. The Worldland network operates according to the WorldLand blockchain protocol, which handles the transactions, deployment, and execution of smart contracts and includes an embedded computer known as the EVM.

The nodes perform a proof-of-work algorithm known as ECCPoW, The first node that solves the problem creates a new block containing a list of transactions that must be executed. Blocks are broadcast to the WorldLand network, and each node verifies that block and adds it to the database.

WorldLand Node Overview

The WorldLand node has the following roles and functions.

  • Consensus is reached by running the ECCPoW consensus algorithm.

  • Create and propagate blocks.

  • Validates the propagated block and synchronizes the "state" of WorldLand.

  • Validate and process transactions.

  • Deploy and execute smart contracts.

  • Execute bytecode using EVM.

Why run a node?

Running your node allows you to use Worldland in a truly private, self-sufficient, and trustless way. You don't have to trust the information you receive because you can verify the data directly using the WorldLand instance.
