Get Started with Docker

Setup the Ocean wallet

Before starting oceand, you need to create Docker volumes named ocean and oceand. You can do this with the following commands:

docker volume create ocean
docker volume create oceand

Start oceand with embedded badger database.

docker run -d \
-e OCEAN_DB_TYPE=badger \
-e OCEAN_NO_TLS=true \
--name oceand \
-v oceand:/app/data/oceand \
-v ocean:/app/data/ocean \
ghcr.io/vulpemventures/ocean:latest
warning

👀 the TLS is disabled for simplicity and the RPCs are not protected. Do not expose the ocean's port to the public internet, the arkd will connect to oceand through the internal docker network for security reasons.

Initialize oceand wallet and unlock:

alias ocean='docker exec oceand ocean'
ocean config init --no-tls
ocean wallet create --password <password>
ocean wallet unlock --password <password>
info

🏃‍♀️ non-interactive mode You can have auto-init and auto-unlock and skip the initial wallet creation and avoid the need of manually unlock the wallet on startup, you can pass OCEAN_MNEMONIC and OCEAN_PASSWORD together environment variables to the container

Run arkd connected to ocean

Before starting arkd, you need to create Docker volumes named ark and arkd. You can do this with the following commands:

docker volume create ark
docker volume create arkd

Run arkd connected to oceand:18000

docker run -d \
-e ARK_WALLET_ADDR=oceand:18000 \
--name arkd \
-v arkd:/app/data \
-v ark:/app/wallet-data \
ghcr.io/ark-network/ark:v0.1.0

Note: On startup arkd will create an account ark on oceand.

Get an address from Ocean to add funds to the ASP:

ocean account derive --account-name ark

Fund the resulting on-chain address with L-BTC (Liquid Bitcoin) and wait for 2 confirmations.
