ARK Deployer v2 — Setup Guide
With the much-anticipated Deployer v2 arrival, we made sure to accompany the release with a full guide. This guide outlines the setup of a new Bridgechain, setting up a multi-node network, and also adding a new Bridgechain to the ARK Desktop Wallet.

You have 2 options to set up your own Bridgechain:
- Install your new Bridgechain (with Vagrant) — follow this very small section for setting it up with Vagrant then skip to section: Adding the Bridgechain to your Desktop Wallet.
- Install your new Bridgechain (without Vagrant) — follow from this section onwards if you want to set up core manually and have a better understanding of the installation steps.
Install your new Bridgechain (with Vagrant)
We have provided a Vagrant file which allows you to deploy your own Bridgechain and Explorer together with no configuration necessary. All IPs when referencing Core and Explorer from the Vagrant machine will use 192.168.33.10.

$ vagrant up
As soon as the Vagrant process has finished installing, the machine will reboot. Once rebooted, Core and Explorer will start automatically ...
