ARK Cryptocurrency Platform Unveils New Testnet along with Mobile and Desktop Clients


Bitcoin Press Release: In an industry’s first, ARK cryptocurrency platform has announced the launch of its public testnet along with mobile and desktop clients.

December 8, 2016, Lons-le-Saunier, France ARK Crew, the team behind ARK blockchain ecosystem has unveiled the first publicly available test network. The platform currently in its final stages of ICO ARK Token Exchange Campaign (TEC) has been setting an example in the cryptocurrency industry.

Earlier, ARK made its source code public on GitHub while the platform is still under development. The testnet’s alpha version is accompanied by the launch of custom, open source mobile and desktop clients. Few other improvements include updates to the core voting mechanism and network technology behind DPOS algorithm.

Being a completely open source platform, ARK Crew has made the newly launched desktop and mobile wallet platforms available on its official GitHub account along with ARK Core technology. Users can freely download and test all the three clients during the initial test phase and provide feedback before the full launch in February 2017.

Unlike Ethereum, Lisk, and other cryptocurrency platforms, ARK has developed several unique features like SmartBridge a new technology that enables seamless integration of cross-blockchain operations. The SmartBridge feature will also allow more sophisticated communications compared to previous proposals like two-way pegs in Bitcoin-based side chains.

The public testnet will be officially released on December 9, 2016, at 1900 UTC. Soon after the release, it will be available on ARK’s GitHub account for community members to download and set up their first network nodes. Those registering will effectively become active delegates of ARK network. The tutorials, to be launched along with the testnet, combined with ARK Crew’s availability on official Slack channel and ARK Forums will provide the much-needed guidance to the community.

The ARK TEC will be ending on December 11, 2016. Investors interested in being part of the ARK ecosystem can participate the ICO with Bitcoin, Lisk or any other cryptocurrency supported by Shapeshift platform.
