Creating a New Node

TIP
Creation of a node must be done through the Bloq Console. For the moment you are not allowed to use the CLI to spin a new node.
TIP
Once initialization of a node is complete, a node will require some time to catch-up to the latest blocks on the blockchain. A node is created using a recent snapshot of the blockchain and generally needs to catch-up for the last few hours of data. \
The duration to sync to the latest blockchain data will vary across blockchains. Upon completion of the sync, the node is ready for usage.

Listing Supported Chains

Viewing all blockchains supported by Bloq Nodes is accessed through the command: bcl nodes chains. The user will be able to view the list of all chains that are offered by Bloq Nodes.

Getting Node Information
