# Access to pre-regenesis history

Because of our final regenesis on 11 November 2021, older transactions are not part of the current blockchain. As such, they do not appear, for example, on Etherscan (opens new window). However, you can access transaction history between 23 June 2021 and the final regenesis using the Etherscan CSV exporting tool.

Follow these steps:

  1. Clone go-ethereum (the standard version) and checkout version v1.9.10:

    git checkout v1.9.10

  2. Download the following three datadir folders:

  3. Build and run the standard geth v1.9.10 with:

    ./build/bin/geth --datadir ./path/to/datadir --rpc
    
    1

    You can then use ERC20 events filters to get the events that you want for each address. Note that you will have to repeat this process for each datadir to get the full event history. If you are non-technical and need help requesting this data please reach out to us in Discord and we will be happy to help.
