Arkham uses its own proprietary artificial intelligence engine, ULTRA, to algorithmically match addresses with real-world entities to enhance transparency in the crypto industry.
Arkham introduces intel-to-earn, an intel economy that matches buyers and sellers of blockchain data at scale.
ARKM is the Arkham platform’s native utility token. It is used for:
Intel Exchange: ARKM is the currency of the Arkham Intel Exchange, the first open marketplace for trading crypto intelligence data.
Governance: Token holders are entitled governance rights to vote on the strategic direction of Arkham.
Incentives: Users earn ARKM rewards for submitting intel, referring new users, and other actions beneficial to the growth of the ecosystem.
Arkham has two main components: an Analytics Platform and an Intel Exchange.
The Arkham Platform provides data and analytics via:
Entity pages for individuals, companies, and other entities, showing current and historical portfolio holdings, searchable and sortable transaction history, profit and loss, and top counterparties.
Token pages showing top holders, transactions, and exchange flows.
Network visualizations mapping entity relationships and flow of funds.
Instant alerts for transactions fitting custom parameters.
The Arkham Intel Exchange allows anyone to buy and sell address labels and other intelligence.
Bounties: Users post bounties for specific intelligence by locking ARKM in a bounty contract. Bounty hunters submit intel for verification and receive the bounty if successful.
Auctions: Users with high-value information can also auction verified intelligence to the highest bidder via an auction system.
DATA Program: Users are rewarded for submitting intelligence used to train Ultra, Arkham’s proprietary AI engine.
The project has raised over 10,000,000 USD from two rounds of equity financing, with the latest equity round valued at 150,000,000 USD. Investors include Tim Draper, Bedrock Capital, Wintermute Trading, GSR Markets, and the co-founders of Palantir and OpenAI.
As at July 10th, 2023, the total supply of ARKM is 1,000,000,000 and the circulating supply upon listing will be 150,000,000 (15.00% of the total token supply).

1. What is Arkham?
Arkham is based on the premise that the labelling of entities on blockchain will unlock unprecedented transparency and push the industry forward for mass adoption.
Arkham’s intel-to-earn economy incentivizes the sourcing of data intelligence at scale and makes it available to everyone to provide greater clarity and transparency in the crypto industry.
2. Project Key Highlights
Entity Analytics: Arkham links blockchain addresses to entities like exchanges, funds, and whales and shows users key data and analytics on these entities to give them an edge in decision-making.
Token Pages: Arkham analytics are also applied on a token-by-token basis, so that users analyzing a token project can see its top holders, transaction activity, exchange flows, and other key metrics data.
Visualizer: The visualizer allows users to map relationships between addresses and entities to intuitively grasp token flows. Multi-chain Partnerships: Arkham has partnered with major blockchains to provide support for their networks, including BNB Chain, Polygon, Avalanche, Tron, and Optimism. Arkham also supports Bitcoin and Ethereum.
ULTRA: ULTRA is the technology behind Arkham, an AI-powered engine that algorithmically matches addresses to real-world entities. Ultra was developed over 3 years by Arkham core contributors with backing from the founders of Palantir and OpenAI.
Intel Exchange: There is large and growing demand for blockchain intelligence as crypto users become more sophisticated. There is also a large and growing community of blockchain sleuths who gather blockchain intelligence. However, there is not a market that matches these buyers and sellers, so crypto users miss out on valuable information and sleuths aren’t paid for their work. The Arkham Intel Exchange creates this market, allowing intel to be bought and sold through smart contract bounties and auctions.
