Can we use MultiChain for academic research/testing for free?

+2 votes
I have a class of 5 graduate students at Regis University, College of Computer & Information Sciences, Denver, CO.  We want to experiment with MultiChain on a Linux Hadoop Cluster.  We'd like to see if we can store information using HDFS or HBase across the cluster of 6 machines.  We are running 64-bit, Linux Centos 7.x  on the machines.  This appears to be supported by your installation documentation.

Is there a cost for experimenting with MultiChain for the research at an academic institution?  It will not be used as a commercial product.

We may want to also install it on a Windows machine as an alternative server on the same network to have at least two Blockchain instances running.

There's no cost for experimentation, whether for academic purposes or not. You only need a commercial license under specific circumstances, as detailed here:
