ARK Crew, developers of the new ARK cryptocurrency ecosystem, has announced the release of its open source code on GitHub. The source code launch was set to coincide with the platform’s first developer-focused bounty program, designed to encourage others to participate in the review and provide feedback on the project.
The new cryptocurrency ecosystem focusses on consumer adoption through a series of core technology advancements, practical applications for everyday use, and strategic partnerships with industry leaders. By utilizing the ARK SmartBridge, ARK will be able to link together existing blockchain technologies into the ARK Ecosystem to create a platform with increased user interaction.
The release of the ARK source code signifies a major milestone in the development of the cryptocurrency platform and a significant move towards the official launch, currently slated for February 1, 2017.
Matthew DC, a Board Member of the ARK Crew, commented: “We know it may seem unusual to release our code before we even launch our project, but we want to be as open as possible. Rather than shy away from competition or worry about others using our code, we highly encourage it. The more teams we have working on ARK technology, the better it will be for everyone!”
ARK is currently accepting BTC and Lisk during its Token Exchange Campaign and raised over $1 million USD in the first 24 hours, including over 5 million Lisk. The campaign will continue until December 11, 2016, at 19:00 UTC.
