Setup Counterparty using Federated Node Docker builds

Follow the documentatation with the below exceptions; http://counterparty.io/docs/federated_node/

After doing

git clone https://github.com/CounterpartyXCP/federatednode.git
cd federatednode

do;

git checkout evmparty

And when you're at the part where you run fednode install <CONFIG> <BRANCH> you run fednode install base evmparty.

After this you should stop the mainnet bitcoin and counterparty processes by running:

fednode stop counterparty
fednode stop bitcoin

And we'll have to wait for testnet to sync:

fednode tail bitcoin-testnet

Then start the testnet counterparty process fednode start counterparty-testnet

and again we wait for the sync to finish:

fednode tail counterparty-testnet

Now we can open a shell in the counterparty-testnet instance:

fednode shell counterparty-testnet

And open one to the bitcoin-testnet as well (different tab in your terminal):

fednode shell bitcoin-testnet

In the bitcoin-testnet let's create a new address

bitcoin-cli -testnet getnewaddress

Copy the address and put it in a var in the counterparty-testnet shell:

SOURCE="ADDRESSGOESHERE"

Go load that address with some BTC and XCP somewhere external.

now follow https://github.com/CounterpartyXCP/counterparty-lib/blob/evmparty/examples/contracts/crowdfund/EXAMPLE.md for your first smart contract.
