ARTIS is an open, permissionless smart contract ecosystem built for the #GreenEnergy revolution. It is the most energy efficient Ethereum compliant blockchain with the added benefit of scalability, low fees, real-time transactions and decentralized identity management.
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 by xDai Chain.
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.
ARTIS Σ1 is connected to xDai Chain, allowing ATS to be transferred into the evolving xDai Chain DeFi ecosystem and work towards a listing on the Honeyswap DEX.
The Minerva Wallet now allows the interaction with ARTIS Σ1, xDai Chain, POA Core and Ethereum mainnet. The integration of WalletConnect was started.
Announcement of the transition towards the ARTIS 2.0 (ARTIS ∑2) network with the migration of ATS from ARTIS ∑1 and preparation for an IDO (Initial DAO Offer) via a Gnosis EasyAuction.
It is planned to auction about 8% of the ATS coin supply in a fair EasyAuction powered by GnosisDAO on xDai Chain. The auction will start March 26, 2021 and last until April 25, 2021.
After the completed EasyAuction and definition of the settlement price for ATS, it will be listed with sufficient liquidity on the Honeyswap DEX.
The ARTIS Σ2 network will be the first Euro stable chain with real-time cashflows, enabled by the Honey Badger BFT consensus (HBBFT), streaming money support and POSDAO staking of ATS.
In order to simplify the access to the ARTIS ∑2 network, further listing options on centralized and decentralized exchanges are evaluated.
The development of the network will be focused on bringing data related applications onto the ARTIS ∑2 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.
