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 mainnet 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 coin ATS.
The movement of assets between blockchains 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.
First time testing of the Honey Badger BFT consensus (HBBFT) in the OpenEthereum client, with 100x throughput compared to Bitcoin and < 1 sec. block time with instant finality.
The ARTIS τ1 testnet was upgraded to use the POSDAO / AuRa consensus logic, providing improved randomness and a testbed for a new staking logic also implemented for xDai STAKE.
Minerva defines a new type of digital wallet, through the integration of self-sovereign identities (SSI) and moneys on multiple blockchain networks. The use of services allows the simplification of user on-boarding to ARTIS and other blockchains.
ARTIS Σ1 mainnet was upgraded to 'Istanbul' with the latest OpenEthereum client (former Parity client) and has successfully completed 10m blocks without a single second of downtime.
After starting the integration of the Honey Badger BFT consensus (HBBFT) to the Parity / OpenEthereum client with POA Network / xDai Chain and LUKSO, now also DMD Diamond supports the development to bring this outstanding consensus into production.
Q4 / 2020
ARTIS Σ1 will be connected to xDai Chain and secured via a multi-signature bridge validators, allowing ATS to tapp into the evolving xDai DeFi ecosystem and money-lego composability and get initial listing on the Honeyswap DEX.
Q4 / 2020
The first mainnets available in the Minerva wallet will be ARTIS Σ1 and xDai Chain, followed by Ethereum, once the user base is satisfied with the performance and usability of the wallet. The integration of WalletConnect is also planned.
Q1 / 2021
Incentivise additional ATS < > xDai liquidity on Honeyswap DEX in connection with the upcoming 'Moon' Network Upgrade enabling staking for ATS on ARTIS Σ1. A potential token sale on a CEX (IEO) or a decentralized auction on xDai Chain are also evaluated.
Q2 / 2021
With the Moon Network Upgrade, ARTIS Σ1 Network will be among the first blockchains to use the Honey Badger BFT consensus (HBBFT) the most resilient, performant and censorship-resistant consensus protocol available.
Q3 / 2021
The development of the network will likely be focused on bringing more applications onto the ARTIS network by providing more and more platform tools to build a sustainable future in a zero-carbon society.
ARTIS is supported by a growing number
of wallets for secure and easy access.
