ARK Community Spotlight — February 2020 Edition

February is a wrap! We are proud of our bright and determined community, and our monthly Community Spotlight newsletter will keep you informed of notable community activities. Let’s dive into some of the ways the ARK community shined this past month.


In February 2020, I created a post that highlights ARK in a nutshell and ties it into implications for the future. It’s a very good read and I recommend you check it out! It received over 70 upvotes and a gold award.

ARK in a Nutshell Post


Some members mentioned in the community newsletter are ARK delegates, who secure the ARK network and provide community services. Their inclusion in the newsletter is in no way an endorsement from ARK.io to vote for specific delegates, and you should always do your own research and consider all the options when voting for a delegate. ARK.io does not run the ARK Public Network.

Here’s the Community Service Spotlight for this month:


Watch this video on how to get involved with ARK, all skills welcome.

Get involved with ARK in a multitude of ways


The Ark Ecosystem Subreddit is a great place to seek ARK knowledge, and you can always find new and engaging content there. New to ARK? Check out my Welcome to ARK Reddit Post with simple instructions to follow.

Here are some notable posts this month:

You can browse more content and contribute your own voice to the ARK Subreddit. Who knows, you may even receive an ARK tip from a community member using Delegate Cryptology’s intuitive ArkTippr Reddit tipbot .


ARK runs monthly bounty programs for coders who contribute to our codebase on the ARK Ecosystem GitHub . Independent programmers can work side by side with our international team and make the ARK toolkit even more powerful and stable.

Multiple coders are contributing to the ARK toolkit 24/7, and you can too — it’s fun, rewarding, and you can earn ARK as well! Get started here .

If you don’t know how to code but you have ideas to improve ARK open source projects, use this video to help you let developers know.

You can also now push issues onto ARK GitHub repos without a GitHub account using the Ark.Party Discord Bot .


ARK Community Committee Promo Video The ARK Community Committee creates and deploys community resources through anonymous and sponsored ARK donations. Completed ACC projects include:

This month, the ARK Community Committee worked on a new project codenamed ‘PROJECT VIDERE II’ and received the first wave of payouts. This project involved research within the overall cryptocurrency community, and ARK.io can use the research in its ongoing project operations. The project and all other ACC activity takes place in public channels in the ARK Discord.

To join the ACC, locate me on Discord.ARK.io .


If you have an idea for an ARK project, large or small, and you are looking for funding, consider submitting a proposal to the ARK Community Fund for review. The ARK Community Fund started as a community initiative and the elected board reviews ideas and projects that enhance ARK. Their website is ArkCommunity.Fund .

The ACF recently held elections for a new board that has five new members now. Congratulations to the new board! Additionally, they are running some giveaways on the #ark_community_fund channel of Slack.ARK.io . Join and check out the chatter in the channel.

The opportunities that ARK Ecosystem provides are ever-growing, and there are many ways you can get in on the action. To reach me, you can contact me on the ARK Slack or Discord : @ Justin (doubled1c3).

Looking forward to next month!
