360 Blockchain Inc. provided an update on its investment in Arcology, a transformative blockchain technology platform.

The company initially invested $1 million for 30%, which, subject to terms, will be increased to $2 million for 51%.

Arcology ( founder and leader, Laurent Zhang, has invented a radically new way of looking at blockchain.

Mr. Zhang’s senior level experience and education highlights include: Research Scientist at Baker Hughes, Senior Engineer at MKS Instruments, Research Engineer at the University of Alberta, M.Sc. Intelligent Systems from the University of Sunderland UK, and a B.Sc. Honours from Oxford Brookes University UK.

Leveraging his experience with machine learning, artificial intelligence and big data algorithmic analysis, he is creating a hierarchical structure that is self‐organizing and self-repairing.

Contemporary blockchain networks are flat and two‐dimensional.

Participating nodes are judged and rewarded according to their computing power, called “proof of work” or investment in the network itself, called “proof of stake”, or some hybrid thereof, each with its pros and cons.

Ethereum, with a US$73 billion market cap, is the current leader in this space, and can be viewed as Bitcoin plus an operating system.

It’s a programmable platform that uses “smart contracts” to execute commands and transactions according to predefined conditions and protocols.

Although Ethereum is capable of running 10-30 transactions per second, the heavy volume has resulted in a backlog of transactions that currently stands at more than 14,000.

Jeff Koyen, Strategic Advisor and 360 Blockchain USA President and CEO, explained: “If we
imagine a contemporary blockchain as a flat disc, Zhang’s is a layer cake that is constantly
improving itself. Arcology behaves more like a living community than a network of computers. But Ethereum is suffering from its success. Transaction speeds have slowed; there are questions about scalability; and fees are becoming prohibitive. Zhang and his team are learning from Ethereum’s mistakes.’

George Tsafalas, President and CEO, stated: “For all the hype surrounding Bitcoin and other highly speculative cryptocurrencies, it’s the underlying technology — blockchain — that has the greatest future.
At 360 Blockchain, we’re committed to building this future, and our investment in Arcology is a significant leap in that direction.”

360 Blockchain Inc. has an all‐round view to accelerate the development and application of revolutionary blockchain technologies by investing capital and expertise.

The company focuses upon identifying and empowering blockchain technologies applying to crypto‐currencies, smart contracts, eSports, data management, the internet of things, equity trading, privacy applications and beyond.

The shares are trading at $0.33, and with 153 million shares outstanding, the company is capitalized at $50.5 million.
