Blockchain is a borderless industry and as such, it has different platforms and organizations working all over the world. Much like an industrial association that has different companies meeting together on a single page to discuss about issues particularly related to their environment, decentralized platforms have different summits and forums where they can meet and sit down to discuss their issues, the future and development in general.
Consensus 2018 Sponsored By ARK
Consensus is a global level forum for blockchain developers and enthusiasts that attracts the largest crowds in the world. Last time, in 2017, Consensus saw more than a 100 speakers from different backgrounds talking about the impact and future of blockchain with 2000 plus attendees. This year, the summit will see more than 250 experts speaking on the present and the future of blockchain and is expected to be attended by people in excess of 5000.
ARK, a decentralized platform that allows users of different blockchains to operate seamlessly between them, is sponsoring the forum and is actively taking part in it. The forum is going to be held in Hilton Middletown, New York City between 14th and 16th May, 2018. The ARK team will set up a spacious booth in the meetings, with separate spaces for general meetings and private ones. The three day event will be used by the team to discuss and talk about its platform and how is it going to impact the blockchain world.
The opening on the first day will see Persona giving a presentation with a follow up by Blockport. Later on, ARK team will take over and give different presentations about its platform.
The next two days will have presentations by the founders of ARK, being given every hour. Some of the presentations will cover the basics, while others will dive deep into the technical data and information. The team can be interacted with in booth #113 during the event.
But What Is ARK?
ARK is a blockchain platform that solves a fundamental issue within the global blockchain ecosystem. With hundreds of platforms dedicated for specific workings and each platform having its own internal token system, it is practically impossible for a user to hold each token or regularly convert from his or her own to the required ones.
ARK helps by making creating a blockchain web that is compatible with other chains. This, and the smartbridge technology allows user of one chain to to trigger an event in another, while using tokens from the originating chain- and sending the receiver his or her chain’s native tokens.
Another feature of ARK is their One Click Blockchain Deployment. This is a premade blockchain that is essentially a copy of the ARK chain, giving any organization the ability to possess ts own blockchain based on the ARK platform. This saves the organization from a burden of development, financial and time investment.
The ARK network has working models of its concept for Bitcoin, Ethereum and Litecoin networks with capability to rebuild the entire ARK network, should the need arise for more compatibility as more chains are integrated.
