Blockchain Platform ARK Forms Partnership with Decentralized Exchange Blockport

Bitcoin Press Release: Blockchain Platform ARK has announced that it is currently engaged in a strategic relationship with Blockport, a decentralized trading platform designed for beginners and advanced level users alike. hello

January 12th, 2018, Lons-le-Saunier, France: ARK has unveiled a strategic partnership with a new promising decentralized crypto trading platform; Blockport. The move comes after ARK announced a worldwide mass contact movement aimed at educating and apprising the public regarding ARK’s groundbreaking features.

The latest development from ARK shows that apart from public education and awareness, the company has decided to show its real consumer adoption value to the public. ARK founders believe that once developers and ICOs get to see the useful and swift application of the ARK platform, the popularity and anticipation of the full version of the platform will increase, thus benefiting the platform’s future prospects.

What’s in it for Both Teams?

According to ARK sources, the company’s partnership with Blockport is because of mutually beneficial reasons. ARK is in the business to deliver easy tools for mass level adoption and Blockport is a decentralized exchange and such that it needs to incorporate user-friendly features on its system. Exchanges should be made easily operable and Blockport has therefore reinforced their vision with a simple motto: “Everyone should be able to trade cryptocurrencies”

The partnership began with the team from Blockport connecting with the ARK platform and developing a crucial synergy between the two entities. Blockport’s decentralization quest involves pegging cryptocurrencies to all major fiat currencies available. Blockport’s vision is that eventually all human elements will be removed from the day-to-day operations of their exchange, representing a significant advantage over competition. The ARK team is expected to help blockport in achieving all of their user-friendly applications.

CFO of ARK, Lars Rensing, is joining the Blockport team in an advisory role according to company sources. He will primarily be advising the decentralized trading company on how to use ARKs capabilities in simplifying the trading experience for users from all backgrounds. According to official sources, novices will also be able to set up their accounts and trade in it with ease. ARK will be crucial in achieving this promise. Lars will also help in developing a strategy which will be effective for both companies.

ARK Becomes France’s First Cryptocurrency SCIC

November 29, 2017, Lons-Le-Saunier, France — ARK Ecosystem is now incorporated in France as a cooperative society (SCIC), registered under n° 833 439 300, with a structure matching our open source blockchain organization. It is the first of its kind in the crypto world, and one of the first blockchain projects to incorporate in the European Union.

SCIC is the French acronym for “General Interest Co-operatives”. It is a new private, common interest co-operative which allows anyone — employees, users, volunteers, public bodies, companies, associations —to act together in a legal framework to govern an entity.

All SCIC members are shareholders and will belong to of one of the statutory categories : Founders, Advisers, or Employees.

The vote principle is : 1 shareholder = 1 vote.

The ARK crew, being initial share holders, will choose the Executive Board of the legal entity, which permits ARK to continue the current board structure.

A long process

ARK decided on the SCIC after working with their legal team and evaluating different options for creating a legal entity. After deciding that incorporating through the Swiss Foundation — a popular option for blockchain projects — was not the best choice for ARK, the team turned to France.

There, they found the SCIC incorporation process. According to the team, that option had almost everything they had been looking for in terms of incorporation.

As a SCIC, ARK will be able to structure corporate governance based on a board of directors and input from the ARK community. Additionally, SCIC incorporation allows ARK to establish a well-defined structure without legal ambiguities related to capital gains and taxation.

Through its SCIC status, the ARK board of directors — except for founders and employees — can name additional shareholders. These new shareholders can also be appointed to the supervisory board, as provided for in the charter. The charter may be amended as often as necessary.

In French Law, the SCIC format also allows public institutions to become shareholders if seen fit by the board.

As a common interest benefit company, an SCIC must keep at least 52.5% of the company’s profits as legal reserves. In the case of Ark, there is no plan to do any distribution of profits to shareholders. Therefore, it will hold 100% of any profits for use in development, marketing, and operations.

An exciting road ahead

This establishment of ARK’s SCIC in France is not only the first of its kind, but it will also bolster the credibility of cryptocurrency in France, the European Union, and the rest of the world.

The prospect of ARK and its SCIC formation has attracted the interest and enthusiasm of some regulatory institutions. During this process, ARK was invited by the Autorité des Marchés Financiers (AMF) —the French regulatory body for financial markets — and the Banque de France (National Bank of France) to present the ARK Project and explain the conditions of the ARK TEC. The discussion was in-depth and encouraging. Conversing with the AMF on how to best comply with French laws resulted in a positive two way conversation with the French government.

The team at ARK is proud to play a part in France becoming a crypto-friendly environment, and proud to be the leaders in this huge step forward in cryptocurrency adoption. And now that the SCIC is finalized, the team will be able to expand and advanced the ARK blockchain technology, which will provide more opportunities for all.
