All-in-one Blockchain Solution ARK Release Major Script Update for Blockchain Network Creation

Bitcoin Press Release: All-in-One Blockchain solution ARK proudly announces the release of ARK Deployer, a lightweight script that marks a major milestone toward the completion of the “Point. Click. Blockchain” system which is a major component in the ARK business model.

January 24th, 2018, Lons-le-Saunier, France ARK set out to create a blockchain solution that offers all of the traditional benefits that come with blockchain networks and systems; ARK is a platform that enables users, developers and startup companies to access exciting and groundbreaking blockchain technologies.

As stated on the website, ARK is setting up to create ‘an entire ecosystem of linked chains and a virtual spider web of endless use-cases that make ARK highly flexible, adaptable and scalable’.

True Progress

By making the blockchain readily available and accessible to many consumers, ARK builds bridges to allow for the simultaneous utilisation of multiple blockchain networks, simplifying the process of having to endlessly trade coins to gain access to rival networks, for example the two major networks Ethereum and Bitcoin.

In short, through the ACES Project (Ark Contract Execution Services) the ARK network can interact freely with Bitcoin, Ethereum and Litecoin blockchains via its genius SmartBridge technology, giving ARK the immense power to utilise their features, such as Smart Contracts which are the bread and butter of the Ethereum Network.

As of now, hackers, developers and anyone who knows enjoys a foray into new technologies have the ability to launch their very own blockchain that runs on ARK technology within minutes.

As the first step toward creating an extremely vigorous ecosystem, the ARK Deployer script gives enthusiasts the chance to begin learning the workings of the ARK ecosystem and familiarise themselves with the code, which is now available for demonstrations through Hackathons and conferences, the script will allow the world to test the limitations of the of the blockchain ‘web’ that ARK so desires to produce.

With Point. Click. Blockchain. You will be able to create your very own connected blockchain, it will not be built on top of the ARK main blockchain, it will be built in paralel. Giving you full control and customizability. Travis Walker at ARK said the following:

“Unlike ethereum and ERC20 tokens. all ark cloned chains can have their own blockchain that will be connected to the ark ecosystem. They will be customizable, you can set your blocktimes, number of delegates, and more. This gives you complete freedom and independance without bloating the ARK mainchain, but while still having the ability to utilize the entire ecosystem”

Blockchain on Demand

For many blockchain technologies it doesn’t seem like a necessary technological tool because of their current reputations and the little public knowledge of how they work. A startup for instance would benefit from blockchain tech as it collectively tracks and unifies events, movements of product, whatever it may be across all parties and give them all the same copy of the ledger.

The benefits are far reaching; a single source of truth for instance will enable all parties on the network to see the same data which also adds a layer of security to business practices and processes.

A startup company can benefit immensely from the Ark Deployer script and begin to build their own blockchain network, one that offers a single truth source, reduces the reliance on costly intermediaries that tend to increase business costs and generate time wasting inefficiencies.

The future of Ark is gleaming at present, once the vision of Push-button blockchain deployment has been realised, there will be a fascinating boom of blockchain understandings and fundamentals as well as the further adoption of the Ark networks fluid and scalable blockchain software.

Blockchain Platform ARK Forms Partnership with Decentralized Exchange Blockport

Bitcoin Press Release: Blockchain Platform ARK has announced that it is currently engaged in a strategic relationship with Blockport, a decentralized trading platform designed for beginners and advanced level users alike. hello

January 12th, 2018, Lons-le-Saunier, France: ARK has unveiled a strategic partnership with a new promising decentralized crypto trading platform; Blockport. The move comes after ARK announced a worldwide mass contact movement aimed at educating and apprising the public regarding ARK’s groundbreaking features.

The latest development from ARK shows that apart from public education and awareness, the company has decided to show its real consumer adoption value to the public. ARK founders believe that once developers and ICOs get to see the useful and swift application of the ARK platform, the popularity and anticipation of the full version of the platform will increase, thus benefiting the platform’s future prospects.

What’s in it for Both Teams?

According to ARK sources, the company’s partnership with Blockport is because of mutually beneficial reasons. ARK is in the business to deliver easy tools for mass level adoption and Blockport is a decentralized exchange and such that it needs to incorporate user-friendly features on its system. Exchanges should be made easily operable and Blockport has therefore reinforced their vision with a simple motto: “Everyone should be able to trade cryptocurrencies”

The partnership began with the team from Blockport connecting with the ARK platform and developing a crucial synergy between the two entities. Blockport’s decentralization quest involves pegging cryptocurrencies to all major fiat currencies available. Blockport’s vision is that eventually all human elements will be removed from the day-to-day operations of their exchange, representing a significant advantage over competition. The ARK team is expected to help blockport in achieving all of their user-friendly applications.

CFO of ARK, Lars Rensing, is joining the Blockport team in an advisory role according to company sources. He will primarily be advising the decentralized trading company on how to use ARKs capabilities in simplifying the trading experience for users from all backgrounds. According to official sources, novices will also be able to set up their accounts and trade in it with ease. ARK will be crucial in achieving this promise. Lars will also help in developing a strategy which will be effective for both companies.

BlockChain Innovators ARK Announce the Release of their Mobile Wallet, Bringing Crypto Freedom to Millions 

Bitcoin Press Release: ARK is happy to announce another huge achievement, with the release of the much awaited ARK Mobile Wallet. Packed full of exciting and streamlined features, the wallet looks set to bring about the widespread adoption of the ARK ecosystem.
You can now vote for a delegate, send ARK, or just check your balance straight from the palm of your hand. No sync needed, just open the app and conduct your business. ARK’s mobile wallet is a hybrid application (using the same codebase for Android and iOS which helps with coordinated development).
Created using Ionic framework and ARK’s TypeScript API to interact with the ARK network via your mobile phone, anytime, anywhere, the ARK wallet is streamlined and will change the way we send ARK for life! The ARK wallet is still in a Beta version so you might encounter some quirks and bugs while checking it out. Give it a spin and please provide feedback so ARK can improve the wallet in upcoming releases!

Highlighted Features

  • Import your existing passphrase (import by QR feature or write/paste your passphrase).
  • Generate a new passphrase.
  • Encrypt access to your profile with a custom 6 digit PIN (AES256+PBKDF2).
  • Most transaction types are available: send, receive, vote, unvote, register a delegate.
  • Connects to both mainnet and devnet.
  • Option for additional profiles (separate profiles for different ARK addresses or networks).
  • Option to add contacts and easily transact with them.
  • Total balance of your combined ARK addresses.
  • Wallet backup — input your selected PIN to decrypt your wallet and gain view of your private data.
  • Change PIN — if you want to change your encryption/decryption PIN you can easily do so.
  • Clear Data — you can clear all your data from the phone (note: this will also delete all of your wallets so if you haven’t yet you should make a backup!).
  • Overview of network status with an option to change peer.
  • Current market value, along with weekly movements.
  • Support for showing data in different FIAT currencies.

Setting up ARK Wallet for Android

Download the ARK App: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=io.ark.wallet.mobile

Or go to Google Play store from your mobile wallet and search for ‘Mobile ARK’ — install. Requires Android 4.1+ to work.

Setting up ARK Wallet for IOS:

  1. Install Ionic View – Test Ionic Apps
  2. Open and click the eye at the bottom
  3. Enter the ID 0894ffa2 and “View App”

This is currently a workaround as we are still waiting on approval from Apple (they are very strict with finance and cryptocurrency apps). When we get final approval for the iOS App store we’ll let you know via social channels. The QR scanner is also not compatible with ‘Ionic View — Test Ionic Apps’ so it won’t work on iOS.

The Future of the ARK Wallet

In the upcoming months ARK will polish up the mobile wallet with input from ARKs community developers and users. They also aim to integrate:

  • Ledger Nano S support via On-the-Go (OTG) cable/adapter.
  • Dark theme.
  • Adding an option to add custom network types (eg. your own ARK-based chain or for instance Kapu, Blockpool, …) just from 1 IP address — use ARK wallet for any current or future ARK based blockchain project!
  • Ability to allow your fingerprint to act as a PIN to unlock your wallet (optional of course).
  • Notifications of receiving transactions.
  • Adding more localizations (you’ll be able to help in this regards to get ARK mobile wallet translated into your local language).
  • Saving your generated passphrase to .PDF.

ARK and OKEx Announce Partnership Listing ARK to Trade Immediately!

Bitcoin Press Release: Digital Currency exchange OKEx has announced the listing of ARK on its’ platform.

22th December 2017, Lons le Saunier, France – ARK is now a registered currency on OKEx. The platform currently offers more than 40 token trading pairs and 5 futures pairs. OKEx’s industry leading BTC futures trade has nearly $1.5B of volume a day and are widely regarded as the gold standard for the industry.

OKEx have served millions of customers in over 100 countries, with about 60% of users originating from China. This platform has solidified itself as a highly respected platform that will provide ARK with a brilliant partnership to trade the coin.

ARK is an ambitious and forward thinking crypto project aiming to create a user-friendly platform for mass consumer adoption via an ecosystem of linked blockchains. The ambition here is to become the “All-in-One” Blockchain Solution.

The ARK Project

Rather than building an entire blockchain from scratch, companies can simply use the existing capabilities in the ARK ecosystem with their own set of delegates for their own purposes – all at the click of a button. This is huge for consumer adoption and the advancement of blockchain technology as it eliminates two major obstacles – developer knowledge and starting a chain from scratch.

Put simply, ARK is aiming to becoming a one-stop solution for all crypto needs, providing cryptocurrency solutions, smart contracts, point-of-sale solutions for merchants, interoperability via Smart Bridge/ACES, and more. ARK is revolutionary and has some fantastic technology behind it, which is why it’s no surprise that OKEx has adopted it on their platform.

2 Stage ARK Giveaway

To celebrate this, OKEx is holding a 2 stage giveaway to the total of 75,000 ARK coins. In stage 1, OKEx users who follow OKEx throughout social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, WeChat, Weixin) will receive a code. With this code OKEx users can join the free ARK airdrop lucky draw game on WeChat for a chance to win 10,000 free ARK tokens.

For Stage 2 all those who register new OKEx accounts during the promotional period, when total ARK trading volume on OKEx exceeds 10 million tokens, all contributors/participants to this volume (any amount) will stand a chance to enter a lucky draw. The total number of ARK tokens being distributed during the lucky draw will be 65,000.

With the ability to be able to use all services that are built in the ARK Ecosystem using ARK tokens, there may not be a need to keep track of 100s of different tokens/coins or worry about having to buy and sell them on exchanges in order to access each individual service that uses its own token/coin. Not only that, but ARK has such a strong innovate and technological foundation that confidence in the project is at an all time high.

OKEx will be opening ARK wallets for deposits on Dec 20, 2017 at 16:00 (Hong Kong Time).
