I'm a but confused with the magic number in the testnet:
- when we execute a transaction with the cli
cardano-cli run transaction, we run it in the alonzo-era. when we check for the magic number, we have to check the networkMagic field in
There doesn't seem to be a networkMagic in
testnet-alonzo-genesis.json, although there is in both the shelly and byron config files, and it's the same networkMagic in these two configs.
Can someone explain how this works with the magic number and the era's?
(As a small side question, why is it actually called the Alonzo era, while we're in the Cardano Goguen era? For the first two, they use the same era names, for the one we're in now, it's another name. It's a bit confusing.)
