Blockchain ecosystem, ARK has announced that the launch of its mainnet — the ARK blockchain with its Delegated Proof of Stake (DPoS) consensus based cryptotoken – is set for Tuesday, 21st March, 2017. Along with the genesis block, the platform will also generate all the ARK tokens for distribution amongst the Token Exchange Campaign participants. A new decentralized digital asset token, ARK is based on advanced blockchain technology and is meant for mass consumer adoption. It incorporates features such as SmartBridge Technology, allowing it to communicate with other blockchains.
The result of months of extensive coding and testing, the mainnet launch will mark a major milestone for the ARK Crew and ARK Community alike. The team behind the development of the mainnet prioritized core stability over the speed of delivery to ensure an efficient system without errors. Significant upgrades made to ARK ecosystem includes the replacement of sidechains with SmartBridge, removal of custom node version, UI (for stability and security), and changes in constants like block time, block rewards, etc.
