June is in the box! The ARK Team is pleased to bring you the return of the
monthly newsletter, now packed with more highlights, activities, achievements,
and unique content. Let’s take a look at what the team has been up to during the
past month.


“ARK has made great strides in June. Websockets and parallel relay

brought a huge stability and speed boost to ARK Core. Syncing the chain from
zero is now faster than ever. Of course, our desktop and mobile wallets still
work instantly with no sync required. Our Slack, Reddit, and Twitter have seen
steady growth through June as the blockchain community continues to build
interest in what we’re doing. With Core v2.5 and v2.6 around the corner, there
will be more utilities and features for developers to harness including the
long-anticipated AIP-11/18/29
. is hard at work
hand in hand with the community, and I only see that increasing as we move
through Summer.”
