An open-source blockchain platform ARK has announced the launch of its anticipated ARK Deployer targeted at simplifying the process of blockchain creation.
All-in-one blockchain solution platform, ARK has announced the debut of its ARK Deployer, a 3-step simplified process to launch a custom blockchain in minutes.
The simplistic and intuitive user interface of the platform suggests that anyone can utilize the ARK Deployer regardless of their level of expertise, by simply manipulating the parameters to suit their needs in a 3-step process that involves preparation, customization, and deployment. Users can choose between three expertise levels: basic, intermediate and advanced with help, updates, and support features to assist the user during the process of creating the new blockchain.
For the basic user, features include default ARK Public Network economic model and network architecture. Basic users can also customize chain identity variables like chain name, symbol, ticker, prefixes, and more. As for the intermediate user, extra custom handling is provided to include the customization of the economic model such as forging delegate count, blocktime, rewards, fee structure, and more. For the advanced user, extensive network customization to include all parameters such as network architecture like ports and paths are available for manipulation.
Simplifying blockchain creation through the ARK Deployer will enable new and old businesses to leverage the perks of blockchain technology such as immutability, secure and resilient decentralized networks without the constraint of the initial technical barriers of designing a blockchain from scratch. The new system can also adopt improved privacy measures.
Moreover, there are limited blockchain application resources to work with in order to tailor to business needs, hence, a rise in demand for the solution is expected. ARK’s Chief Strategy Officer Matthew Cox seems to believe that a stack of developers tools can aid developers in building more blockchain-related applications at a considerable short amount of time. He stated:
“Developers are crying out for tools to significantly reduce the time and effort needed to utilize blockchain technology. With the ARK Deployer, users will quickly be able to create their own scalable, efficient and decentralized blockchain network based on ARK’s code but customized to their specific requirements. This means users can focus on building their own ideas, projects or applications, safe in the knowledge that they will have a solid and secure blockchain foundation as part of the ARK Ecosystem.”
While it appears the demand for secure blockchain solutions is on the rise, there is also a shortage of blockchain developers with the required expertise to provide value-rated services. The cost of hiring a resourceful blockchain developer is also on the high-end, thereby creating entry barriers for businesses into the blockchain industry.
The advantage of the ARK Deployer as a free-to-use blockchain creation tool could significantly lower the entry barrier into the industry, by demystifying the once-thought to be complex system through the simplification of the lengthy processes involved in the deployment of a blockchain.
Ki Foundation’s CEO Réda Berrehili said:
“Creating our own ecosystem utilizing ARK’s technology as a starting point means that our organization is able to progress quickly and efficiently. We’re able to focus on developing our business-specific applications while ARK’s open source technology is providing us with a free, efficient and scalable blockchain foundation.”
ARK is an open-source blockchain platform focused on solution stacks aimed at enthusiasts of all technical levels as well as enterprises, to approach blockchain from the most simplistic view possible in order to ease transition and adoption of the technology. The project is also at the frontier of building smartbridges between blockchain systems, in an attempt to breach the seams that divide decentralized ecosystems.
