The next step in creating your Hyperledger Fabric 2 Network is to invite all the participating organizations. With FirstGen it is simple to invite an organization, as per the figure below:
As soon as an organization accepts the invite and deploys its peer node(s) — in the infrastructure of its choice — the network creator is alerted. As enough organizations accept the invite and deploy their peer nodes, the network creator — or administrator — may start creating channels and uploading chaincodes.
The network administrator sets the initial number of peer nodes in accordance with the network governance, but the organization may always ask for more peers using FirstGen. If the request is approved by the network administrator, the new peer node(s) is automatically implemented by FirstGen and all parties are notified via email and on the notification section of their FirstGen Dashboard.
