I need you guys to help a brother out. I'm writing this research paper, right? I need you to list the main reasons behind ARK's popularity.
Thanks for your help!
You don't mind if I share with you my personal reasons, which might be a bit too simple, right? I marked my main reasons with red text,
Personally I first heard of ARK when I got my Ledger Nano S and the nice icon caught my eye, so I researched about it and I liked the idea of bridges, a plugin market for ARK-based projects and dApps
I also researched the ARK's competition, namely EOS and TRON, but both of them were ERC20 token back in 2017 which for me meant the project doesn't have a strong enough team to be worthy my investment.
At the same time ARK was cheaper than EOS and TRON was a bit too new on September, so the choice was obvious for me.
