A new version of the ARK Desktop Wallet has been released. The best ARK wallet just got even better thanks to your input! Many of the improvements and new features are a direct result of community feedback, testing and bug reporting.

It has only been two weeks since the release of version 2 of our Desktop Wallet and there have already been several improvements and bug fixes. A sincere Thank You to the community developers who have helped ARK in the past and continue to support us.

After the release of the v2 wallet, we received many questions asking when Changelly would be re-implemented and we heard you loud and clear.

Our next release will feature a new and blended design that better matches the aesthetic of the rest of the wallet.
