How It Works

How It Works

How It Works

Scale Made Simple and Secure

Send bitcoin payments to Ark users at a fraction of the cost of an on-chain transaction, with the assurance that you can redeem your Ark funds on-chain at any time, even if your Ark Service Provider (ASP) goes offline.

Bitcoin onboarding for everyone

Anyone can start using bitcoin for less than the price of an on-chain transaction. No need to pay to set up a channel, just download an Ark wallet and start receiving virtual transactions right away. You decide when you redeem your bitcoin at the base layer.

Receive payments offline

Sometimes it just happens, you lose your connection. The Ark protocol ensures you can continue to transact even when offline.

The power to keep transactions private

Regular bitcoin transactions are published publicly for all to see. Ark takes your transactions off-chain so that your payments stay between you and the person you're transacting with.

Developer-friendly platform

Ark works on a hub-and-spoke model. Each user only interfaces with one entity—the ASP—keeping the complexity of app development to a minimum. Ark also uses UTXO-style transactions (called VTXOs in Ark), so anyone familiar with bitcoin development can hit the ground running!
