ABOUT ARK
ARK provides users with innovative use cases through the development and integration of technologies that power the blockchain universe. Highly flexible and adaptable, ARK is a secure platform designed for mass adoption and will deliver the services that consumers want and developers need.
FAST

ARK's Core is configured to produce ultra fast transactions with 8 second blocktimes. With easily implemented future scaling, higher throughput is available whenever ARK needs it.

DECENTRALIZED

ARK provides a more decentralized voting system than other DPoS consensus models. Voting weight is divided across all votes instead of assigning 100% weight to each vote, making it nearly impossible for a takeover of the entire network.

BRIDGING

ARK aims to bridge well known blockchain technologies through the use of SmartBridges, thus achieving hyper-connectivity.

SUSTAINABLE

The ARKShield program provides an extra layer of protection to ARK. A professionally managed Sustainability and Contingency Fund or ARKShield, will provide stable funding throughout development.
