ARTIS, Building the foundation for a human-centric, crypto-based ecosystem
Abstract
Blockchains will revolutionize the world we live in. This new technology has the
potential to disrupt entire industries and challenge the status-quo of our reality.
ARTIS
will be one of the blockchains to contribute to the revolution that’s
underway.
The ARTIS
Blockchain (“
ARTIS
”) is built to serve as a foundation for decentralized
applications by providing an open-source ecosystem sharing many similarities with
the Ethereum Blockchain and therefore enriching the application space for new
business models.
ARTIS combines the advantages of its infrastructure such as the Proof of Stake
consensus algorithm, with novel proposals in the blockchain space such as
Plasma, Raiden and Sharding to solve for the two biggest issues that blockchain
faces right now: sustainability and scalability.
ARTIS introduces two completely new system features:

most of the initial ARTIS development and communication. A three-year
contract with the ARTIS Foundation ensures that the lab10 collective
provides key developmental resources.

ARTIS Network
The hardware infrastructure is maintained by
Trustnodes
and
Freenodes
.
The sign-on process of
Members
is handled by
Registrars
. Governance, coin
distribution and consensus will be managed independently, to avoid
interference between them.
Governance for ARTIS will be a decentralized, liquid democracy inspired system
utilizing the unique ARTIS Network; combining a mixture of off-chain and on-chain
decision making.
ARTIS is built for continuous value increase and therefore the distribution of ARTIS
coins is tied to the growth of the ARTIS ecosystem. The total amount of ATS is
capped at a maximum of 21,000,000,000 ATS and 3,000,000,000 ATS are availabl...

1. The ARTIS Ecosystem
1.1. Background: The Rise of Cryptoeconomics
Since the introduction of Bitcoin in 2009, the world has witnessed the rise of
distributed ledger technology and cryptocurrencies. This new paradigm is
frequently called cryptoeconomics and encompasses the protocols that govern
the production, distribution and consumption of goods and services in a
decentralized digital economy.
Cryptoeconomics uses computer networks, cryptography and dis-/incentives that
are derived from game theory to create a new ecosystem for how we trade, work
and live. Blockchain is the underlying technology of cryptocurrencies, and it is
about to fundamentally transform traditional systems in the same way that the
emergence of the internet once did.
This innovation, however, is still in its infancy. Crucial aspects of cryptoeconomics,
such as protocols and interactions between systems, are not sufficiently defined

1.2. Vision of the ARTIS Blockchain
The ARTIS Blockchain is laying the foundation for a human-centric, crypto-based
ecosystem. The ARTIS vision is to be a Blockchain that benefits the common good,
respects privacy, is resource-efficient and will be available as open source for
every human.
Sustainability
: In addition to using resource-efficient technology (Proof of Stake),
ARTIS facilitates the implementation of new business models focused on reducing
resource consumption (e.g. sharing economy).
Usability
: The ARTIS ecosystem will be user-friendly and intuitive, making
interactions on and with the Blockchain easy. ARTIS will provide a framework and
foundation for implementing automation in new and novel use-cases.
Cooperation
: ARTIS will be an integral part of the evolving network of Blockchains
connected through systems like the Interledger Protocol. The ARTIS foundation
also proactivel...

1.3. Design of the ARTIS Ecosystem
When designing a new blockchain system, a host of different aspects such as
usability, scalability, security and integration must be taken into consideration.
ARTIS addresses the following issues:

Interaction with blockchains is still a grey area for the average user.
Cumbersome user interfaces, complicated security measures and a general
lack of access leave much to be desired within existing frameworks.

Private key-management is not suitable for lay people who usually do not
have backups, lose their passwords and expect phone support.

Machine integration is still very vulnerable when hardware is accessible to
hackers and software changes are not easily detected.

Purchasing coins poses another big hurdle for lay people and the current
crypto business world. There is no convenient connection to legacy banking.

Identit...

3. Simple Mobile Integration
Usability will be addressed by creating a mobile app by combining the best
features of Status
i
, Toshi
ii
and Byteball
iii
. This will provide the best possible
user experience and offer simple integration with ARTIS-based services. It
will also allow direct, automated transfers between Euro/Dollar and ATS.
The integration of new tokens will be simple, ensuring full participation in
new innovations and a simple way to trade them.
Many people are still scared to be tricked into sending funds to the wrong
address and therefore it will be possible to redeem funds for a predefined
period. Furthermore, the key management will be possible in a more secure,
but still decentralized way for less experienced users.
A simple support for self-sovereign identity data management and
authentication is also planned for the
Bootstrap Phase,

1.4. The Minerva App
In our current economy, monopolistic platform structures enjoy a clear
competitive advantage due to their efficiency and network effect. However, these
structures lead to privacy infringements on their customers and lack innovation.
Furthermore, payments are unnecessarily complex and go through a myriad of
service providers.
ARTIS will allow to change that by providing an intuitive interaction interface for
users. This application, the ARTIS '
Minerva
' app, has privacy built into it and users
can choose their mode of payment freely. Minerva is an all in one
DApp/Chat/Contract/Payment App for interacting with the ARTIS blockchain.
The development of Minerva will be ongoing and will include the following
features:
1. Transactions
:
Minerva
will allow true peer-2-peer payments. These can also
be initiated within a chat, via private payment channels as well...
