A digital meritocratic republic.

Arisen brings to life a meritocratic republic in digital form, where users elect a governing body to make decisions on behalf of the global network and where its users can vote on just about anything.

About The Governance

DPOS algorithm.

The delegated proof of stake (DPOS) algorithm is how Arisen network nodes automatically come to a consensus on the validity of actions and transactions. It has been tried and tested in world-renowned blockchain projects like BitShares, Steem and EOS, and is now the foundation for Arisen's governance model.


Byzantine fault tolerance.

Arisen is built around a protocol known as Byzantine Fault Tolerance (BFT), allowing the network to still reach consensus even if some of the elected block producer nodes stop functioning or if the elected governance members themselves choose to attack the system. Simply put, Arisen is protected from tyranny.


On-chain governance.

The Arisen community is responsible for voting on and electing a 21-member governance that are not only responsible for producing blocks of validated transactions but also have the delegated power to reverse fraudulent transactions, freeze accounts and halt illicit applications through a 15/21 majority vote.



Governance elections on Arisen are always ongoing and users can change their votes every 60 seconds. This means governance members can be removed from the governance for abuses of power at a moment's notice.



Arisen's users and developers all agree to the network's Constituion when using anything on the network to insure that users and their rights are protected, while also protecting developers and their applications from illicit or illegal activity. When making decisions, regardless of a community vote, elected governance members must abide by the rules held within the Arisen's Constitution.


Freezing accounts.

Arisen governance members through a 15/21 vote can freeze accounts and reverse fraudulent transactions in the event that an account is taking part in illegal activity or proof can be shown that funds have been stolen. Abuse of this power will certainly result in a governance member being voted out by the community and their freeze action reversed.


Halting applications.

Governance members also have the ability to halt applications that are designed to harm the network and its users, or an application that enables and promotes criminal activity. This insures that Arisen will never be used to create webs like the "darknet".


Improvement proposals.

Users of the community can create improvement proposals for the Arisen network, which can be voted on by other community members and ultimately ratified by Governance members through a 15/21 vote. Everything from the core developers of the Arisen software to the marketing team behind the network itself are voted on by the community, hired by the governance and paid through the community's on-chain savings account that is completely funded through the network's yearly inflation model.
