Quick start

Last Updated: Feb 23, 2019

Alibaba Cloud BaaS provides a quick mode to create and deploy secure blockchain networks. You only need to specify the required information, and Alibaba Cloud BaaS will automatically perform operations to create a complete blockchain network. These operations include creating a consortium, creating organizations, and inviting groups to join a consortium or a channel.

Note: When you are familiar with the blockchain business, you can also choose the standard mode. In this mode, you can invite new members, extend and customize your blockchain system, or create a new blockchain system. For more information, see Use blockchain services.
