⚠️ We recommend to start the container with the following command for Mainnet:
docker run -p 6869:6869 -p 6868:6868 -e WAVES_NETWORK=MAINNET -e WAVES_LOG_LEVEL=DEBUG -e WAVES_HEAP_SIZE=2g -v YOUR_LOCAL_PATH_HERE:/waves wavesplatform/node
docker run -p 6869:6869 -p 6863:6863 -e WAVES_NETWORK=TESTNET -e WAVES_LOG_LEVEL=DEBUG -e WAVES_HEAP_SIZE=2g -v YOUR_LOCAL_PATH_HERE:/waves wavesplatform/node
You can run the container with the following predefined environment variables:
