Atlas City is building a distributed computing solution that works in the real world: not forked, but written from scratch; a fair and efficient model of consensus, built from the lessons of first generation blockchains.
At Atlas City we're engaging with multiple industry participants. Innovators in supply chain management, utilities, food provenance, plastics recycling and the energy sector are among the first to adopt the Catalyst Network.
Atlas City will be launching Catalyst Network as an open source project in 2019 and will support the growth of the ecosystem by providing software development tools, distributed application development and private instances for industry-specific applications to enterprises.Watch the Video
The Catalyst Network internal testnet is live. The developer testnet will be available in 2019. Third-party testing and development will take place in the second half of 2019.
Catalyst makes a decentralised Internet possible. Light, fast, secure, scalable and democratic, the Catalyst Network is a fully functional stack that works in the real world and rewards all its supporters.
The Catalyst Network is the first viable path to decentralising the Internet.
It's inexpensive to use and easy to program. It promotes equitable reward and it has reduced energy consumption.
The network is designed to scale to hundreds of thousands of validating and storage nodes providing nearly unlimited transaction throughput.
Catalyst Network works with most common programming languages. It has the ability to convert and migrate from other chains and existing software applications.
Distributed File Storage is a better way to store, protect and share data that facilitates automation with authentication, authorisation, and confirmation/validation.

Robert A. Hefner III is founder and owner of The GHK Companies. He pioneered ultra-deep natural gas exploration and led the development of innovative technology necessary to successfully drill and produce the world’s deepest and highest pressure natural gas wells. In the 1970s, he was the lone proponent to accurately forecast America’s natural gas abundance, and a leader in the efforts to deregulate natural gas prices.
Hefner holds a geology degree from the University of Oklahoma, is a member of the International Council at Harvard’s Belfer Center, a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society of London, a former Board member of the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA), and was inducted into the Oklahoma Hall of Fame in 2010. Hefner’s book on the past, present and future of energy development The Grand Energy Transition, was published by Wiley & Sons in 2009. The book was subsequently translated into Chinese and published by CITIC. A documentary based on the book is available free of charge at www.The-GET.com. Recently, the GHK Group has transitioned into investments specializing in biotech, blockchain and gas and oil royalties. Since 1985, Hefner has actively pursued his interest in China in the areas of energy, foreign affairs, and contemporary Chinese art, developing the internationally known Hefner Collection (www.hefnercollection.com).
Hefner and his wife, MeiLi, founded the Robert and MeiLi Hefner Foundation which sponsors educational trips to China for outstanding high-school students. The Hefners were the principal donors for the James R. Schlesinger Professorship of Energy, National Security, and Foreign Policy at Harvard’s Kennedy School.
