Full node on Android OS enters final testing
Blockchain accessibility is about to take a massive leap forward. While Bitcoin has offered the ability to run a validating node on the Android operating system and devices, mining on those devices has been entirely impractical. Ardor is propelling blockchain to the next level of decentralization with the forthcoming release of full, forging nodes on Android OS devices. This means you will be able to forge your ARDR tokens directly from your mobile device - no raspberry pi rig needed. Check out the teaser photo posted this week as the team finishes internal testing before the public release.
