Currently, I have been playing around with the Cardano Playground and I was wondering if there is an existing tool already present where I can personally run a Cardano blockchain like Ganache of Ethereum blockchain?

In the lecture #4 of the current Plutus Pioneer program, there's a way to run a faux blockchain with Plutus contracts. The first 90 minutes are a Haskell tutorial, but then it goes into how to use the EmulatorTrace.

It's not a full testnet, so it might not be a full replacement for Ganache (which I haven't used), so maybe No.
