I'm working on a project with Tezos. I would like to know if we can change the balance of an account. I work with Ubuntu.

    can you clarify what you mean by "change the balance of an account"? you mean making a transaction to the account?

  • Are using the sandboxed mode (tezos.gitlab.io/mainnet/user/sandbox.html) ? If it is the case, you can use the preconfigured accounts which can be listed with tezos-client list known addresses.

In sandboxed mode, if you want to change the default parameters (balances, time between blocks, blocks per voting period, …) you can edit the sandbox-parameters.json file (located at the root of the repository).
