Wolfram Blockchain Labs Announces Integration with ARK Ecosystem at SXSW

Wolfram Blockchain Labs announces integration between its DLT hosting architecture and the ARK Ecosystem. Through this collaboration, the ARK public API is now integrated into the Wolfram Language and programmatically available for analytics, application development and computational exploration-with universal and consistent functions for building services using data from ARK nodes.

Wolfram Language functions allow access to Testnet and Mainnet networks to create and access transactional data posted to Bitcoin, Ethereum, ARK, and other blockchains. By integrating the ARK public API within the Wolfram Blockchain Lab DLT hosting architecture, this new integration allows developers to create new applications and explore blockchains with broadened scope, superior visualization tools and customized analysis of transactions.

Pointing to Wolfram's proven history of software engineering and innovative solutions built into the Wolfram Language, Kristjan Kosic, CTO at ARK, said, "This integration will enable programmers and researchers to operate at a significantly higher level than ever before, by leveraging built-in computational intelligence that relies on a vast depth of algorithms and real-world knowledge carefully integrated over three decades into the Wolfram Language. We are very proud to work with the Wolfram team to provide this integration and add this to our already large number of integrated programing languages."

Christian Pasquel, Director of Connectivity for Wolfram Blockchain Labs, added, "Integrating ARK blockchain with the Wolfram Language was a straightforward task thanks to their well-documented system and intuitive methods. By supporting the ARK blockchain, we are joining an already active ARK developer community and opening the doors to a new dimension of blockchain computable data that will allow users and developers to create production-grade applications, as well as experimenting with ARK's innovative technology, data structure and consensus."

Wolfram and ARK are now rolling out the functionality to users in a closed beta for their community members and will be available to everyone later this year.


Wolfram Blockchain Labs provides distributed ledger technology ecosystems with the tools necessary to assist in the development of a wide variety of smart, contract-based applications. Wolfram Blockchain Labs is the DLT-focused subsidiary of Wolfram Research, Inc., the creator of Mathematica, Wolfram|Alpha and the Wolfram Language. Wolfram is the leader in developing technology and tools that inject sophisticated computational intelligence into everything.


ARK is a platform for Blockchain development and creation, making it easy and intuitive for anyone to create their very own blockchain, much like Wordpress and Wix have done for website creation. ARK is aiming to build an entire ecosystem of linked bridgechains and projects that are completely customized while allowing everyone to interoperate with each other. All ARK based chains can be customized in aspects including blocktimes, custom transactions, transactions per second, plug-in modules, dynamic fees, etc. ARK aims to empower the users to create their own blockchain with a wealth of creation options and use cases.
