Unikname and its unikname.network blockchain, has been built uppon ARK.io blockchain. Technically 'unikname.network Core' and 'unikname.network Explorer' are forks from 'ARK.io Core' and 'ARK.io Explorer'.
In doing such we've contributed to the ARK developments. We're participating to code improvement and we're the core developers of the NFT module of ARK, enabling management of Non Fungible Tokens with the ARK.io Blockchain.
To get more information about the ARK.io blockchain we recommend reading the upstream documentation of ARK.io (opens new window).
As of January 2020, unikname.network Core is built on Ark v2.7.
