ARK GitHub Development Bounty Program — December 2019

As we leave 2019 behind, it is time to go over our monthly ARK GitHub Development Bounty Program. It was a busy development month with many community contributions, for that we want to thank everyone who participated. This program runs nonstop throughout the year so it’s never too late to join in.

Thanks to all of the developers for their continued contributions! Be sure to spread the word about our bounty program to help us get more developers involved and contributing to the ARK Ecosystem, not only improving the codebase but also giving developers a way to learn & earn.
