Tired of staring endlessly at your wallet waiting for your transaction to clear?
With 8 second block times, ARK’s network is one of the fastest in the industry.
ARK utilizes a modified Delegated-Proof-Of-Stake (DPoS) consensus mechanism featuring 51 delegates.
These delegates are tasked with running the network and are rewarded with block rewards, much like miners in Bitcoin.
Our primary goal with ARK is to keep the core blockchain lean and blazing fast.
Through the use of our custom built SmartBridge functionality we are able to off-load non-essential functions to hundreds of side-chains. This allows for great scalability while keeping the main ARK blockchain lean and fast.
ARK isn’t being built by one man, one team, or even in one country.
ARK is a truly global effort with 13 core team members from 9 different countries and an ever growing population of hardcore dedicated community developers, ARK is a collaborative effort in the true sense of the word.
ARK bridges well known blockchains through the use of our custom SmartBridge technology, making an ecosystem of interconnected blockchains possible.
Looking for a blockchain solution for your business or project? ARK is your solution.
Our ecosystem and projects are completely open-source to help facilitate your needs to launch your very own SmartBridge compatible blockchain. Everything is hosted on GitHub for your ease, and convenience.
