What runtime params setup constitutes bad outcomes?

+4 votes
we have the ability to change permissions and consensus rules. Sometimes its difficult to ascertain what value may affect another, and equal a bad consequence.

Are there some "bad" examples of param settings. and further could this be coded as a warning when first run? You have chosen round robin mining but set difficulty to a high value.

perhaps not the best example:

running multichaind chain -daemon
warning: difficulty value outside normal expected operation (since it would take 12 months to mine)

continue y/n

Unless you set pow-minimum-bits to some high value, the difficulty on a chain starts off low, and auto adjusts based on the chain's behavior. MultiChain doesn't currently warn you against doing this, but hopefully it's not something you're going to do by mistake.

To answer your question more generally, please take a look at the 'Production recommendations' section of this page: https://www.multichain.com/developers/blockchain-parameters/
