Bitcoin Wiki is a good source for different ways to set this up. But for a basic version running Linux, specifically Ubuntu, read below.
https://en.bitcoinwiki.org/wiki/Setting_up_a_Tor_hidden_service

Setup TOR, the easy way is

sudo apt-get install tor

Otherwise look here https://2019.www.torproject.org/docs/debian.html.en

Once that is done lets add the hidden service, which will be your onion address.

sudo nano /etc/tor/torrc

Now add this to the file. Devault appears to only work with v2, and doesn't work with v3, so we force that option.

HiddenServiceDir /var/lib/tor/hidden_service_dvt/
HiddenServiceVersion 2
HiddenServicePort 33039 127.0.0.1:33039

Close and save, then restart the tor service.

sudo service tor restart

To get your new onion address.

sudo cat /var/lib/tor/hidden_service_dvt/hostname

Now to setup the devault wallet, stop your Devault wallet and edit the devault.conf

nano ~/.devault/devault.conf

Add these lines, and this is where reading through the Bitcoin Wiki link above is a good idea.

onion=127.0.0.1:9050
externalip=yournewonionaddress.onion
listen=1
discover=1

I like to remove peers.dat before restarting the wallet, now restart, and hopefully some others have setup onion's to connect to.

here is one to try as an addnode
