What’s Next

In 2021, we plan to release new and refreshed products to create a unified experience across the ARK.io ecosystem. That includes Core v3, the Desktop and Mobile Wallets, MarketSquare, Deployer and Nodem. We believe these products combine to create one of the most robust and user-friendly blockchain suites in the industry and it doesn’t stop there. We will continue to build and adapt our products to lead the industry in both user interface design and function in 2021 and beyond.
