Developers can run full nodes of Ethereum, mine cryptocurrency, and carry out smart contracts using Geth, a command-line interface that stands for “Go Ethereum.”
What is Geth command-line interface?
Geth is a command-line interface for one of Ethereum blockchain’s three main code components.
Google’s Go programming language is used to build the Ethereum network, it serves as the interface for creating, editing, and manipulating blockchain Go code. In addition to Go, Ethereum’s blockchain and protocol are built on Python and C++.
When it comes to running an Ethereum node, Geth is the easiest way for a developer to get involved in blockchain development. Developers can get to the Ethereum blockchain’s very foundation and work on bugs and possible improvements with Geth because it is an open-source project.
In order to fulfill their roles as validators, many node operators rely on Geth, which is the most user-friendly way to run an entire Ethereum node.
