Currently i am using substrate-node-template and I have done all my work in that I want to make it production ready, Can someone tell me is there any guide that what changes I have to make in the template node to make it my own chain and how can i deploy it as my own blockchain so it is ready for anyone to connect with it and deploy contracts on that.

The first resource I'd go is the Network Maintainers section in the Polkadot wiki, where you have guides to set up the validators, nodes...

I want to share with you previous questions on StackExchange about this topic:

Also, if you want the smart contract functionality on top of the substrate-node-template, you have been using you have to add the Pallet Contracts or the EVM pallets if you want to allow the deployment of EVM smart contracts (Solidity). You can take a look in these templates:

  • Hey thanks Alex so i have already configured the pallet contract node in my node template and i will be going with the aura consensus just wanna know now that which parts need to be changed in the node template of substrate in order to make the chain mine and i can interact and can deploy smart contracts on it Commented Jun 16, 2023 at 15:10
  • You want to run your chain as a solo chain, that means is up to you the security and everything. In case you want to connect to polkadot to benefit from the pooled security, thought-through governance, and overall scalability of the heterogeneous sharding approach of the network you need to convert your node into a parachain

You first need to decide what consensus you want to use for block production babe or aura, as node-template use aura and substrate uses babe.

You must be familiar with how to set a private network you just need to set up the network on any cloud service like AWS, there is no specific guide on how to launch a production ready chain. You can follow this if it helps.
