ARK Community Spotlight — August 2019 EditionsteemCreated with Sketch.

in arkecosystem •  13 days ago 

August is a wrap! We are proud of our determined and bright community, and our monthly Community Spotlight newsletter will keep you apprised regarding notable community activities. Let’s dive into just some of the ways the ARK community shined in August 2019.

COMMUNITY SERVICE SPOTLIGHT

Some members mentioned in the community newsletter are ARK delegates, who secure the ARK network and provide community services. Their inclusion in the newsletter is in no way an endorsement from ARK.io to vote for specific delegates, and you should always do your own research and consider all the options when choosing a delegate for whom to vote. ARK.io does not run the ARK Public Network.

Here’s the August 2019 Community Service Spotlight:

GET INVOLVED

Watch this video on how to get involved with ARK, all skills welcome.

NOTABLE REDDIT POSTS

The Ark Ecosystem Subreddit is a great place to seek ARK knowledge, and you can always find new and engaging content there. New to ARK? Check out my Welcome to ARK Reddit Post with simple instructions to follow.

Here are some notable August posts:

You can browse more content and contribute your own voice to the ARK Subreddit- who knows, you may even receive an ARK tip from a community member using Delegate Cryptology’s intuitive **ArkTippr Reddit tipbot**.

COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT

ARK runs monthly bounty programs for coders who contribute to our codebase on the **ARK Ecosystem GitHub**. Independent programmers can work side by side with our international team and make the ARK toolkit even more powerful and stable. ARK has also recently doubled the bounty amounts.

To compress this newsletter, we will link to the reports moving forward.

Multiple coders are contributing to the ARK toolkit 24/7, and you can too — it’s fun, rewarding, and you can earn ARK as well! ***Get started here***.

If you don’t know how to code, but you have ideas to improve ARK open source projects, use this video to help you let developers know.

You can also now push issues onto ARK GitHub repos without a GitHub account using the Ark.Party Discord Bot.

ARK COMMUNITY COMMITTEE

The ARK Community Committee creates and deploys community resources through anonymous and sponsored ARK donations.
Completed ACC projects include:

  • ArkTimeline.com — All ARK’s achievements and accomplishments in one place, searchable filterable, and linkable by the query string.

  • ArkThoughts.com — Community opinions on 30 ARK concepts, including the Core, wallets, Explorer, SmartBridge Technology, and media channels.

  • This month, aside from further progress on whitepaper and contest situation, a new project launched, codenamed Project ROGATIO. Progress is coming along very well and non-coders can jump in, help, and earn ARK right now.

To join the ACC, locate me on Discord.ARK.io.

ARK COMMUNITY FUND

If you have an idea for an ARK project, large or small, and you are looking for funding, consider submitting a proposal to the ARK Community Fund for review. The ARK Community Fund started as a community initiative and the elected board reviews ideas and projects that enhance ARK. Their website is **ArkCommunity.Fund**.

In August, the ACF **posted a brief update**.

The opportunities that ARK Ecosystem provides are ever-growing, and there are many ways you can get in on the action. To reach me, you can contact me on the ARK **Slack** or **Discord**: @ Justin (doubled1c3).

Looking forward to September!
