I am looking at how to generate the Genesis block/ledger on stellar-core.

I have seen people suggest pre-populating the database, what is the easiest option for a newbie to stellar-core.

1 Answer 1


Genesis ledger is created when you first initiate the database by running stellar-core new-db, so you do not need to populate it manually.
