0 votes

I am following this tutrial: https://medium.freecodecamp.org/from-what-is-blockchain-to-building-a-blockchain-within-an-hour-4e738efc819d

While running any geth commamd after this command: geth personal.newAccount()\npassword I get this:

geth:129: command not found:password.

How do I fix this?

The issue is with your command. It's very easy, here, run the following command:

geth personal.newAccount('your_password')

This should solve your problem :)
