Don't know if you read this fantastic write up, I'll just leave it here (it makes you think why the hell ark isn't valued at least $25 right now):

Hey, everyone. We know there has been a lot of FUD and confusion over what exactly the Ark Team's vision for the project is and where their priorities lie. We, the founders of the biz_classic delegate, spoke to Grexx, a co-founder and advisor, and wrote a summary of our discussion over the future of Ark. This should hopefully address a lot of issues that have been raised here over the past few months.

“There is a vision. We just need everyone to know what we know.”

The Three Components

Component 1: The core network, aka the Ark mainchain, which will be used as the main blockchain through which other blockchains will communicate; this is the backbone of the Ark Ecosystem. The Ark token will also be the basic currency within this ecosystem, much like Ether is the basic currency within the Ethereum ecosystem.

Component 2: ArkVM on push-button-deployed blockchains. The ArkVM will not be on the Ark mainchain as to not bloat it up (see: cryptokitties and popular ERC20 ICOs). ArkVM enabled chains can be used to create applications and services that can be used by users in other Ark-connected blockchains in the ecosystem. This sandboxes popular dApps into their own blockchain to not adversely affect other projects in the ecosystem. While these self-contained chains running their own dApps are sandboxed, they can interact with the outside world by bridging to the Ark mainchain. Holders of Ark, or other Ark-forked coins, will be able to trigger smart contracts on different connected blockchains using the Smartbridge.

Component 3: Point. Click. Blockchain. To create an active ecosystem of connected blockchains, the team is working on making blockchains easily deployable and manageable. The team started by wanting to create their own “blockchain network” that would all be connected through a central technology and all use one token. Their goal is still to build that and to make it available for everyone, everywhere with very minimal programming knowledge. Once the first two components are complete (Core v2 and ArkVM), the team’s energy will be focused on creating a user-friendly system for deploying blockchains.

“Consider Ark an easily deployable DPoS-based Ethereum that anyone can launch in minutes with the ability to interconnect applications and services using the Ark Mainchain to process these cross-chain payments -- all without bloat”

“The goal is still to create bridges to ETH, BTC, etc. but that is more of a bi-product of the core platform we are building.”

Features of the Ark Ecosystem:

    Easily deployable blockchains that will automatically be Smartbridge-enabled

    Smart Contracts via the ArkVM running in different connected blockchains Blockchain modules

    Chains in the ecosystem will be able to pick and choose different modules to enable for their chain (like ArkVM) much like Wordpress has an extensive plug-in library for many different Wordpress installations

    Delegate marketplaces to find people to run your chains

Beginnings of the Ark Ecosystem

    Kapu, a blockchain for archaeological data

    Blockpool, a B2B blockchain solution providing tokens for businesses

    Persona, a new Ark-connected fork, is likely to be the first major Smartbridge blockchain that will serve a key component in the overall ecosystem, identity management. Imagine a single sign on system that has users pre-authorized KYC/AML done and the ability to work with all Ark Ecosystem chains out of the box

PR and Marketing

The team is working on solidifying their message and vision into proper marketing materials and presentations.

Author’s note: I’ve noticed a difference between their old and new marketing materials. While older materials like the ones in their Bitcointalk thread focused on the Smartbridge and interoperability, the newer ones (like the official YouTube videos) all say “Point. Click. Blockchain” instead which supports the grand vision of creating an ecosystem of easily deployable and customizable blockchains. Creating the ecosystem will require interoperability via the Smartbridge, of course, but the main focus seems to be making these deployed chains interoperable instead of connecting existing chains like Ethereum, Bitcoin, etc. Of course, that doesn’t mean the community can’t step in and provide that interoperability. See: ACES

The team is also focusing on hackathons to get the Ark brand and blockchain technology out to young budding developers that may one day deploy and build chains for the ecosystem. They’re playing the long game here.

Development

The Ark team is currently working with several contracted development teams to help implement and bring together each component. The development team is definitely larger than just the Ark Core developer, Fx (Francois-Thoorens), and the handful of community hires. According to Fx, there is currently a contracted development team assisting in building the ArkVM.

IoT and Smartcards

A common community concern is that the whitepaper lists too much and the team is trying to do too many things at once. Ark was created because the team all wanted to build their own blockchain projects but their projects would all be isolated and incompatible. Hardware (IoT) and Smartcards are projects team members wanted to work on which is why they were included in the whitepaper. A lot of these will be secondary projects once the core platform is complete and team members will transition to working on them as projects within the ecosystem. For now, the team is focused on building a stable mainchain (Ark Core v2) and the ecosystem (Pushbutton deployable chains + ArkVM).

    IoT: Mike Doty, Ark’s managing director, is really interested in hardware and will probably be working on building IoT devices that will communicate with each other over an Ark-deployed chain.

    Smartcards: Initially it would be loadable with Ark and would be an Ark token focused card. If someone had tokens on ecosystem chains, they could use the bridges to convert to Ark and load the card seamlessly.

Technical Details & Value of Ark Coins

The "Smartbridge" (aka Vendorfield) is just a text field that's bundled with every transaction. It is not a technology in and of itself. The value of that text field comes from the technology that's built on top of it such as ACES or the deployed chains using that field to send messages across blockchains.

Delegates in the deployed chains will also be running Ark Nodes in addition to the nodes for their own blockchain. This means every deployed chain's delegates will also have their own Ark address and will require a stash of Ark coins to facilitate communication with the ecosystem. There is incentive to be a part of the Ark Ecosystem (and incentive to buy/hold Ark) due to the services that will exist within it.

The team is improving their communication with the community. This summary is proof of that by engaging with one of the largest community delegates (biz_classic). If there are any further questions regarding the project please ask them and the biz_classic delegate will forward them to Grexx and other team members.

That's me.

Unfortunately, the New Year has not started well for me. I therefore need money for medical treatment as soon as possible. I wouldn't have to explain the sale here, but it has nothing to do with ARK itself. If I didn't have to, I wouldn't sell.

If someone is interested in buying up to 300000ARK at a fixed price... . please PM me!

You can even split the ARK and sell it on Binance as well.Trading on exchanges will be the fasted way to get your BTC and no escrow will be required.

Last time someone dump Ark it was also health problem, his 2 balls have some kind of problem and he need the money. Just to found out he dump Ark to pump Bitbay, which I have a big chance to dump all my Bitbay. This guy is just the same, he don't need $2 to $3 million for his lying nonsense health problem, or perhaps he's looking to buy the whole hospital, he could of just do it little by little but he rather want to show his holding and power. This kind of show off usually from Ark competitor, basically he have more in other crap.

https://medium.com/@arkaces/aces-completes-ark-authentication-listeners-for-ark-bitcoin-ethereum-and-litecoin-ff98c1c792cf   A new realease for ark and eth listeners, plus ltc listener which is new to me. I think that next step is xmr listener but I really can't wait to start watching services build on ark and eth listeners.

If they marketing even with the help of ACF or the Ark team then the services will start flourish but as usual with Ark everything would die out because of incompetent marketing or spreading of new.

They hired a PR company for that I guess but anyway, they said that they will start marketing hard when the product is good to go (this means after coreV2, arkVM and push-button)

Last I checked, that "PR company" was pretty much shit - even looked like a scam PR firm with fake twitter followers. Whatever, though, I'm not in this coin for short term hype. Let the hype come when V2 is released, won't need marketing at that point, work will spread naturally. That said, still repping the ARK sig!
Yep, I can see us top 10 just for the technology - not from shady and bullshit means such as Tron

I also keep my tokens from the ICO, and I do not intend to sell them in many months. I think it's the best strategy for a project like this.

Totally agree with you! ARK will be in top 10 coz of its great features and future Smiley

thank you man.

Which exchange can be used to trade eth/ark? I've seen that this isn't possible on bittrex...

Don't know if you read this fantastic write up, I'll just leave it here (it makes you think why the hell ark isn't valued at least $25 right now):


Ark isn't traded at $25 right now is because the market is currently irrational and driven by emotions.

Just look at shitcoins and vaporware like EOS or Tron, they can be in top 10 marketcap even without their own blockchain.

If Ark wanted to, it just has to add a few buzz words like what tronix is doing and I guarantee it will go into top 10 in a month.

But Ark is still in development and we are in this for the long term, not short term pump and dumps. With tech like this, we will be one of the most well known crypto projects if the devs deliver.

Just hodl on.

It is just a thought that how come ARK has been somehow left behind in terms of surging alternative cryptocurrencies. Honestly the technology it presents is great and somehow backers are not interested as reflected to its price .

It is just a thought that how come ARK has been somehow left behind in terms of surging alternative cryptocurrencies. Honestly the technology it presents is great and somehow backers are not interested as reflected to its price .

Because it's a feeding frenzy right now and there are newer, sexier, shinier options. It happens to all the established projects, not just Ark--HODLers keep HODLing, but when the market is feeling confident overall, the adrenaline junkies throw their money into riskier, sexier plays. If you look, many of the good projects (the ones that are well established with credible teams and solid road maps; NEO, XMR, DASH, Ark...) are treading water right now while ridiculous stuff like Dentacoin goes through the roof. The good projects will do fine in the long term; you just have to be patient--it's the circle of (crypto) life.

Is it true that ARK will be the new owner of Novaexchange? And how would that be?

Where dis you hear that info?

Don't know if you read this fantastic write up, I'll just leave it here (it makes you think why the hell ark isn't valued at least $25 right now):

Hey, everyone. We know there has been a lot of FUD and confusion over what exactly the Ark Team's vision for the project is and where their priorities lie. We, the founders of the biz_classic delegate, spoke to Grexx, a co-founder and advisor, and wrote a summary of our discussion over the future of Ark. This should hopefully address a lot of issues that have been raised here over the past few months.

“There is a vision. We just need everyone to know what we know.”

The Three Components

Component 1: The core network, aka the Ark mainchain, which will be used as the main blockchain through which other blockchains will communicate; this is the backbone of the Ark Ecosystem. The Ark token will also be the basic currency within this ecosystem, much like Ether is the basic currency within the Ethereum ecosystem.

Component 2: ArkVM on push-button-deployed blockchains. The ArkVM will not be on the Ark mainchain as to not bloat it up (see: cryptokitties and popular ERC20 ICOs). ArkVM enabled chains can be used to create applications and services that can be used by users in other Ark-connected blockchains in the ecosystem. This sandboxes popular dApps into their own blockchain to not adversely affect other projects in the ecosystem. While these self-contained chains running their own dApps are sandboxed, they can interact with the outside world by bridging to the Ark mainchain. Holders of Ark, or other Ark-forked coins, will be able to trigger smart contracts on different connected blockchains using the Smartbridge.

Component 3: Point. Click. Blockchain. To create an active ecosystem of connected blockchains, the team is working on making blockchains easily deployable and manageable. The team started by wanting to create their own “blockchain network” that would all be connected through a central technology and all use one token. Their goal is still to build that and to make it available for everyone, everywhere with very minimal programming knowledge. Once the first two components are complete (Core v2 and ArkVM), the team’s energy will be focused on creating a user-friendly system for deploying blockchains.

“Consider Ark an easily deployable DPoS-based Ethereum that anyone can launch in minutes with the ability to interconnect applications and services using the Ark Mainchain to process these cross-chain payments -- all without bloat”

“The goal is still to create bridges to ETH, BTC, etc. but that is more of a bi-product of the core platform we are building.”

Features of the Ark Ecosystem:

    Easily deployable blockchains that will automatically be Smartbridge-enabled

    Smart Contracts via the ArkVM running in different connected blockchains Blockchain modules

    Chains in the ecosystem will be able to pick and choose different modules to enable for their chain (like ArkVM) much like Wordpress has an extensive plug-in library for many different Wordpress installations

    Delegate marketplaces to find people to run your chains

Beginnings of the Ark Ecosystem

    Kapu, a blockchain for archaeological data

    Blockpool, a B2B blockchain solution providing tokens for businesses

    Persona, a new Ark-connected fork, is likely to be the first major Smartbridge blockchain that will serve a key component in the overall ecosystem, identity management. Imagine a single sign on system that has users pre-authorized KYC/AML done and the ability to work with all Ark Ecosystem chains out of the box

PR and Marketing

The team is working on solidifying their message and vision into proper marketing materials and presentations.

Author’s note: I’ve noticed a difference between their old and new marketing materials. While older materials like the ones in their Bitcointalk thread focused on the Smartbridge and interoperability, the newer ones (like the official YouTube videos) all say “Point. Click. Blockchain” instead which supports the grand vision of creating an ecosystem of easily deployable and customizable blockchains. Creating the ecosystem will require interoperability via the Smartbridge, of course, but the main focus seems to be making these deployed chains interoperable instead of connecting existing chains like Ethereum, Bitcoin, etc. Of course, that doesn’t mean the community can’t step in and provide that interoperability. See: ACES

The team is also focusing on hackathons to get the Ark brand and blockchain technology out to young budding developers that may one day deploy and build chains for the ecosystem. They’re playing the long game here.

Development

The Ark team is currently working with several contracted development teams to help implement and bring together each component. The development team is definitely larger than just the Ark Core developer, Fx (Francois-Thoorens), and the handful of community hires. According to Fx, there is currently a contracted development team assisting in building the ArkVM.

IoT and Smartcards

A common community concern is that the whitepaper lists too much and the team is trying to do too many things at once. Ark was created because the team all wanted to build their own blockchain projects but their projects would all be isolated and incompatible. Hardware (IoT) and Smartcards are projects team members wanted to work on which is why they were included in the whitepaper. A lot of these will be secondary projects once the core platform is complete and team members will transition to working on them as projects within the ecosystem. For now, the team is focused on building a stable mainchain (Ark Core v2) and the ecosystem (Pushbutton deployable chains + ArkVM).

    IoT: Mike Doty, Ark’s managing director, is really interested in hardware and will probably be working on building IoT devices that will communicate with each other over an Ark-deployed chain.

    Smartcards: Initially it would be loadable with Ark and would be an Ark token focused card. If someone had tokens on ecosystem chains, they could use the bridges to convert to Ark and load the card seamlessly.

Technical Details & Value of Ark Coins

The "Smartbridge" (aka Vendorfield) is just a text field that's bundled with every transaction. It is not a technology in and of itself. The value of that text field comes from the technology that's built on top of it such as ACES or the deployed chains using that field to send messages across blockchains.

Delegates in the deployed chains will also be running Ark Nodes in addition to the nodes for their own blockchain. This means every deployed chain's delegates will also have their own Ark address and will require a stash of Ark coins to facilitate communication with the ecosystem. There is incentive to be a part of the Ark Ecosystem (and incentive to buy/hold Ark) due to the services that will exist within it.

The team is improving their communication with the community. This summary is proof of that by engaging with one of the largest community delegates (biz_classic). If there are any further questions regarding the project please ask them and the biz_classic delegate will forward them to Grexx and other team members.



Excellent words! congrats for your explanation!  Smiley

hi everyone one: is thare any way to buy Ark with euros or dollars?
As for now dude you cant buy an ARK using dollars or euros directly but theirs a option ; buy Bitcoin or ETH and convert it to ARK

thank you man.

Which exchange can be used to trade eth/ark? I've seen that this isn't possible on bittrex...

Yeah, and bittrex now can not register new account, but you can buy ark with eth on binnace, okex or coss. But i suggestions you buy on binnace because it have big volume than all

guys, should I hold ARK till the end of 2018?
I got some extra free money and wanna make profit from that
since I followed this topic, I found that ARK has so much potential, but I'm not sure does it grow faster than some others coin that I'm following too.
