ARTIS is an open, permissionless smart contract platform built for the circular economy. It is the most energy efficient Ethereum compliant blockchain with the added benefit of scalability, low fees, real-time transactions and easy deployment.
ARTIS is 500x more energy efficient than Visa or MasterCard,
1,000x times cheaper than Ethereum or Bitcoin and can handle
up to 1,000 transactions per second with real-time
ARTIS manages and secure assets, data and
identities in a 100% tamper proof, decentralized
blockchain systems. Fully compliant with Ethereum.
ARTIS is 99.999%* more energy efficient than Bitcoin. Unlike Bitcoin, which uses proof-of-work (POW), ARTIS is capitalizing on the Proof-of-Authority (POA) consensus mechanism.
Low and predictable fees are a key requirement to run decentralized applications at scale. ARTIS allows for up to 10,000x cheaper transaction fees than Ethereum and is a reliable layer atop.
The ARTIS blockchain is designed for large-scale business applications and scales both horizontally as well as vertically. The network setup of new chains can be adjusted according to its major use cases.
ARTIS uses the same code base as Ethereum making it the best choice for decentralized applications that need to capitalize on Ethereum while needing more scalability and faster settlement times.
The ARTIS blockchain can be easily bridged to other Ethereum EVM compatible blockchains, allowing the movement of assets between the chains: several bridges have been deployed already.
A block is produced at every 5 seconds allowing it to support sensitive value transfers in the context of end consumer applications.
The ARTIS blockchain allows for quick and easy deployment of decentralized applications putting the developer in the driver’s seat. With less effort, more gets done.
The ARTIS blockchain is an open, standards-based, free to use open-source blockchain system accessible to anyone.
The ARTIS blockchain, together with the Minerva Wallet’s decentralized ID capabilities, goes far beyond GDPR and puts humans privacy at the center.
ARTIS is an open blockchain protocol with multiple
software layers to decentralize, not just value transfer
and data integrity, but human and machine identities too.

Q1 / 2017
The development of ARTIS was started with the objective to underpin use cases for a sustainable, carbon neutral economy.
The ARTIS Blockchain was introduced in cooperation with the Cryptoeconomics Research Lab at the WU Vienna with the objective of offering an open blockchain protocol to experiment with programmable money for various applications.
While the crypto markets were collapsing, we have been working relentlessly to launch the ARTIS main net and managed to overdeliver in times where most market participants underdelivered.
Providing a safe storage possibility of assets on ARTIS and for the ARTIS native token ATS.
The movement of assets between blockchains (interoper-ability) is key for broader blockchain adoption. Several bridges have been implemented to effortlessly move ATS, PLY and DAI tokens between Ethereum and ARTIS.
ARTIS supports the world’s first automated EV-charging with streamable DAI via the Minerva Wallet proving that real-world blockchain based use cases are on the verge of mass adoption.
With the Moon Network Upgrade, ARTIS will be the first blockchain to use the Honey Badger of BFT consensus (HBBFT) the most resilient, performant and censorship-resistant consensus protocol available.
A coordination platform to foster the transition to carbon neutral energy supply on a global scale.
ARTIS will be listed on multiple decentralized exchanges.
ARTIS will integrate Swarm and will be amongst the first to support decentralized storage.
The development of the network will be carried out based on the learnings and achievements of 2020.
ARTIS is supported by a growing number
of wallets for secure and easy access.
