The ARK Roadmap features various projects and sub-projects that ARK.io is working on. It is a percentage-based project dashboard for the developmental pipeline of ARK technology. Let’s look into a special update on the progress of our roadmap.
MarketSquare.io (Beta). MarketSquare is a platform designed to be a showcase and meeting place for Delegates, Blockchains, Plugins and Businesses in the Economy 2.0. During August, we expanded on the documentation for the new platform, so new users can get the assistance they may need for performing various tasks within MarketSquare. In addition, we released a blog article detailing the future of MarketSquare. The MarketSquare future roadmap is divided into four phases: Socialize, Develop, Educate and Promote. We aim to make MarketSquare into a powerful tool for the entire industry, and the work does not end after the Public Beta release during Q4 2020 by any stretch.
At this time, MarketSquare is a functional platform that has been tested by Alpha testers outside of the ARK Team. With the main design and development completed, we are now implementing the final features suggested by initial testers and squashing the final minor bugs to make MarketSquare as robust as possible. Users can join the Public Beta mailing list to be alerted when MarketSquare goes live during Q4 of this year.
ARK Deployer Upgrades. We have been improving the process of creating a customized Blockchain ever since the Alpha version of the ARK Deployer went public last year. In this new version, users will be presented with a far-improved web-based graphical user interface. One-click deployment is also possible with this upcoming version. The new Deployer will support multiple hosting providers as well as provide users with the flexibility to easily deploy servers and entire networks with a few simple steps.
During August, we released a first look article into the all-new Deployer, displaying screenshots of the new UI (currently functional during testing, not mockups) and describing why we feel this product sets a new industry standard for creating a standalone chain. The article goes into heavy detail on the degree of customization developers get, as well as the improved process of deployment. The article concludes with details of the features developers get when managing the chain post-deployment.
The Public Beta mailing list became available during August at Deployer.io.
