BlockSec, a blockchain security tech firm, has launched a new toolkit called “Phalcon Fork” that enables collaborative testing on private chains forked from arbitrary positions and block numbers on the Ethereum mainnet. The objective of the toolkit is to enhance the management of work carried out on testnets, including transaction testing, analysis, and debugging. Moreover, users have access to additional functionalities like snapshots that allow them to store specific blockchain positions and return to them at any time during testing.
Additionally, Phalcon Fork includes a built-in faucet to provide users with free fork network Ether for performing transactions on private chains. Users can only fork from the Ethereum mainnet at present, but future support for additional blockchains has been teased. The Shapella hard fork went live on the Ethereum mainnet without a hitch on April 12, allowing Ethereum validators to withdraw staked ETH from the Beacon Chain, which has contributed to a positive price action for Ether.
