Arcology runs a hierarchical blockchain that uses proprietary algorithms and artificial intelligence to eliminate inefficiencies that hinder rival blockchain platforms.
“If we expect blockchain technology to become commercial powerhouses, they must begin to look like operating systems, like Windows or Linux, not impenetrable black boxes,” said Arcology’s founder Laurent Zhang in a statement. “That’s what we’re building at Arcology -- an enterprise platform that’s designed for widespread commercial use.”

In tests recently conducted, Zhang and his team showed that a single node on the Arcology network can process high volumes of transactions at speeds far faster than those on the Ethereum Virtual Machine. Indeed, using its self-organizing technology, the network can process multiple millions of transactions per second.
In a statement, Jeff Koyen, Codebase’s chief strategy officer, said the company was committed to Zhang’s blockchain vision.
“We look forward to supporting [Zhang and] his team as they begin benchmarking their technology and opening the platform to public review,” Koyen said.
Codebase shares were trading 11.1% higher at C$0.05 in morning trade Monday.
Vancouver-based Codebase Ventures aims to take stakes in fledgling tech companies and recently changed its name from 360 Blockchain Inc to signal its move to widen its investments beyond blockchain-focused companies.
