Peer-to-peer machine learning

Arbius is a decentralized network for machine learning and a token with a fixed supply like Bitcoin. New coins are generated with GPU power by participating in the network. There is no central authority to create new coins. Arbius is fully open-source. Holders vote on-chain for protocol upgrades. Models operate as DAOS with custom rules for distribution and rewards, providing a way for model creators to earn income.


We make AI democratic.

Arbius is controlled by its users, not monopolized by large corporations and governments. The design of Arbius makes it difficult or impossible to censor usage, allowing for anyone in the world to interact with AI models permissionlessly.

Bitcoin Inspired Model

Economically Optimized

Have computationally hard tasks performed at a market rate by a decentralized network of miners.

The price of any commodity tends to gravitate toward the production cost. If the price is below cost, then production slows down. If the price is above cost, profit can be made by generating and selling more. At the same time, the increased production would increase the difficulty, pushing the cost of generating towards the price.

The Arbius network has solvers competing with each other to provide solutions to tasks proposed by users, at the lowest cost. Initially, the task reward provides a way for solvers to earn Arbius, allowing users to pay little or no fees, but over time a market rate will develop matching the underlying compute cost. Solvers are incentivized to optimize their software to generate results for users as fast as possible to increase their profitability.

  • Secure generation. As long as a majority of the miners are honest, tasks are confirmed on a decentralized network and are available within seconds.
  • Easy Integration.Easy Integration. Generations done via Arbius may be directly connected to downstream applications such as webapps, NFT marketplaces, chat-bots or gaming.
  • DeFi AI. Model creators are able to set a base fee for invocations of their model, delivering revenue to those who hold the models token.

Economic Rules

The Arbius token has a max supply of 1 million tokens. Arbius is minted through task rewards following a continuous halving process, where the first year 50% is designed to be minted, 75% second year, 87.5% the third year, and so on.

Task rewards follow an adjustment algorithm where the reward changes based on the ratio of total supply to expected total supply. The more collective GPU power is being used to mine Arbius, the more the reward is reduced, targeting the above emission schedule.

These rules are enforced by the smart contract. While they will not change for Arbius, other tokens using Arbius's technology may change them to suit their needs.

Tasks may include a fee, which is transferred to solver upon completion of the task. Once the task reward is reduced, all tasks which hope to be solved are expected to provide a market set fee for completion.

Models may set a fee required to be able to invoke them. This fee is subtracted from the task fee, and is distributed to the model contract. Model contracts may be tokens which perform economic activity with the collected fees, or a multisig or other contract.

10% of all newly created Arbius is sent to the Arbius DAO. The DAO is controlled by holders of Arbius tokens and operates entirely on-chain.

Program Allocations:

  • 1% Initial DEX Liquidity
  • 9% DEX Liquidity Provider Incentives (over 4 years)
  • 10% DAO
  • 10% Team (4 year vesting)
  • 10% Private Sale (2 year vesting)
  • 60% Mining
