MArket Value and Rank
Any node running the core blockchain code wishing to become a forging node must register their account within the ARK network. The fee for this registration is set to 25Ѧ per delegate account registered. ARK incorporates a new DPoS voting system originally envisioned by the Crypti Founders. The ARK system fee is 1Ѧ per delegate vote.
The voting weight of each wallet will be split evenly between all delegates voted. For example:
- If a wallet votes for one delegate, that delegate receives 100% of the wallets voting weight.
- If that wallet votes for an additional delegate, the entire vote weight is split evenly between the two delegates at 50%.
- By adding a third delegate, the voting weight splits again, and each of the three delegates receives 33.333% of the voting weight from that wallet
The 51 forging nodes with the highest number of votes are eligible to Forge ARK blocks. This design eliminates the possibility that any single large ARK holder or an organization holding large percentages of ARK are able to gain control over the entire network by voting for all of their nodes into forging positions, thus effectively taking complete control over that DPoS Blockchain. Votes from ARK Tokens held by ARK Crew may be used at ARK Crew's discretion
