How can I add DNS seed data into Multichain for the global blockchain?

Hard coding? or Runtime parameter?


Thanks in advance.

You can just tell people to run MultiChain with a seed address in the regular node address used for connecting. You can also use the addnode runtime parameter or addnode API to add more nodes.

I don't quite get this answer. Can you please elaborate a bit more on how a DNS seed can be added based on the message that we get by default?

dnsseed thread start
Loading addresses from DNS seeds (could take a while)
0 addresses found from DNS seeds
dnsseed thread exit
When you run MultiChain for the first time, you provide a "node address" of another node in the network to connect to. You can put your seed in there, e.g.:

Understood. And can I also use DNS for the node that is joining the chain?
When a node joins a chain, it doesn't need to be looked up in any way, so I'm not sure I understand the question.
