The Manage Networks page consists of two separate sections, namely:
- Default Networks, and
- Custom Networks
Default Networks - This section allows you to enable or disable the default networks that ARKVault makes use of. You may select the following networks:
- ARK Devnet
Note that ARK Devnet is disabled by default. If you wish to enable it within ARKVault, click the white checkbox immediately to the right of the network name. When ready, click the Save buton to enable ARK Devnet.
ARKVault requires that at least one default network is enabled at all times. This is to ensure that transactions can take place and no errors arise in the event that a network is unavailable.
