FAQ

  1. Why do I need to “Force” my Network in the Desktop Wallet? When your BridgeChain node is auto-forging, it uses loopback addresses (127.0.0.x) to connect to itself and act as a forging node. If the Force option isn’t enabled, the Desktop Wallet will try to connect to the loopback addresses as they show as peers when querying the /api/peers endpoint. Forcing a connection means you connect directly with your BridgeChain seed node, instead of having to launch a range of relay nodes to serve as peers.

  2. I lost my Genesis Passphrase. Where can I find it? Take a look in your configuration file, in delegates.json. You will find it in there (unless you removed it).

  3. Will Deployer work on XYZ Operating System? We recommend only running the ARK Node on Ubuntu 16.04. It may be possible on other Operating systems, but it is more specifically tested/used on this Operating System.

  4. Can I change the fees for my BridgeChain? Yes you can which can be found under node options, however this causes issues with the Desktop Wallet (and anything that uses the ark-js package).

  5. What is a Seed Node? A Seed Node is used as an initial peer facilitating service discovery of other peers. Something that is used as a basis for Nodes to connect with, to then become “attached” to the Network.
