Ark just can’t stop making headlines recently, with Jeremy Epstein being added to the roster not long after Ark partnered up with OKEx for trading; the company is hitting all the nails on the head. Ark realised that they needed to recreate their ARK Core from scratch and have provided details into the development.
Point – Click – Blockchain with the ARK Core v2
Ark is proud to share its journey with the public as they make their way through their roadmap. ARK’s previous Crypti/Lisk legacy code that was initially used was in need of changing. This gave way for the ARK Core v2 which the company believe will help prepare for the future changes in deployable DPoS blockchains.
ARK Core v2 boasts some impressive achievements like being able to rebuild the Blockchain in a little over a 1 minute for the mainnet on a Macbook Pro. That means that every time a node is started, the script will perform a rebuild so that the processes can be securely synced back to the network. Further work is being done to make this the most successful deployable DPoS blockchain.
Exploring Ark Core v2
A list of features was shared in one of their recent blog posts. Here are the targets on their technical roadmap for building the ARK Core v2:
- Running on Mac/Windows/Linux.
- Single command line install.
- Componentable (Relay Node, Forger, Transaction Pool, Storage, Public API, P2P API, option for your own components).
- Forging process running behind firewall.
- Programmable State Machine with an auditing API.
- Implementation of AIP11 (protocol serialisation).
- Implementation of AIP14 (versioned restful API).
- Implementation of AIP15 (WebHooks).
- Leveraging multi processor capabilities
- Fast rebuild using SPV
- BIP38 encryption of delegate passphrase in config file with One Time Password (OTP) encryption in RAM for security.
- Rotating and compressing log.
- Constants in config file, with progressive fork rules, to ease the configuration of deployable arkchains.
- Support for various databases (MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite3, MsSQL, …).
- Internal API for forger.
