Arthur Brock builds targeted currencies which shape the social dynamics of our emerging post-industrial economy. He has created more than a hundred designs for multi-currency systems and his software companies have built and deployed dozens of those systems. Initially, Arthur put his experience in Artificial Intelligence to use at GM and Chrysler & Hughes, but shifted his focus to building intelligence into social architectures rather than on computers. In 2012 He founded Agile Learning Centers: student-run schools with dozens of locations worldwide. He has also founded award-winning, employee-run businesses. Art’s work focuses on the critical role that incentives, feedback loops, and currencies play in successful and regenerative organizations. His latest projects, Holochain and Holo, are about scaling those patterns. Holochain is a massively scalable, inexpensive post-blockchain framework for writing distributed apps (dApps). Holo is its flagship project — a decentralized hosting service that bridges Holochain apps (hApps) to the legacy web of today.

Initially, Arthur put his experience in Artificial Intelligence to use at GM, Chrysler & Hughes, but shifted his focus to building intelligence into social architectures rather than to computers. He started student-run schools and award-winning, employee-run businesses and discovered the engine that runs these types of organizations involve specific patterns of incentives and feedback. He began to unlock secrets of the Social DNA by which people operate and the critical role of currencies for programming these patterns.
Arthur’s designs include currency systems for: collaborative scientific research, sustainable fishery management, corporate compensation plans, employee stock options, community-based economic development, business barter and exchange, triple-bottom-line trade credits, open source software development, customer loyalty programs, water rights, recirculating gift certificates, community service, employee performance management, arts & culture development, risk-management in the insurance industry, efficient resource sharing & management, and community & environmental impact assessment.
