The entire process is straightforward and can be done in three easy steps. By using the ARK Migrator’s frontend application a user will perform the following steps:
Step 1: Input your address information for the new stand-alone Blockchain and the amount you want to migrate. All of the ERC20 information will be auto-filled for you by MetaMask.
Step 2: Review the transaction information to ensure it is correct and click “Accept”.
Step 3: Once the transaction is accepted the conversion will be automatic and processed in the background.
That’s it. Functional, reliable and a great complementary tool for developers looking to convert their ERC20 tokens over to a sovereign Blockchain.
Simon Rikmenspoel, CEO of Hiway stated: “Being a part of the development of the ARK Migrator allowed us a fascinating peek within the ARK Network. An ever-evolving and boundary-pushing blockchain which made the development of something as complicated as the migrator a walk in the park.”
Now while the process is incredibly simple, you may be wondering, what are the benefits of migrating from Ethereum to ARK? While both networks have their strong points, we believe the benefits of switching tilt greatly in ARK’s favor.
The ARK Blockchain was built on the belief that blockchains should be sovereign. In fact, it is one of the core beliefs in our whitepaper and a tenet of everything we build. It is our goal to not only make Blockchain easier for everyone but to do so in a way that keeps to the fundamentals of sovereignty and decentralization. If your blockchain and your product are tethered to Ethereum and suffering from high fees and network congestion, it’s time to cut the cord. With ARK Migrator, that process becomes as seamless as using Deployer.

ARK’s Blockchain Framework counters the inefficiencies of the Ethereum network in nearly every way. Our blockchain framework is highly customizable, seamlessly integrates your project among our entire suite of products, and provides you with extensive documentation to get everything up and running. But in case you need some more reasons on why you should switch, take a look at this:
- Low Fees
- Custom Transactions
As a business, we understand that many projects have staked their livelihood on the success of their project. Therefore we believe all projects should have autonomy and not be constrained to a single network. By being truly decentralized and having your own native blockchain, you decide your project’s future. You will never again pay astronomical gas fees for sending a transaction. There are already enough costs associated with running a business, high transaction fees shouldn’t be one of them. Lastly, by building on ARK’s Blockchain Framework you can take advantage of staking for your community using ARK’s Delegated Proof-of-Stake governance.
At the heart of all this is our belief in sovereignty. It is the basis of everything we do, and it is the reason we have developed these tools for everyone to freely use. So don’t just create a token — build your OWN blockchain. With ARK’s interoperable design, strong developer support and smart functionality the reasons for switching have never been clearer.
