Intel-to-Earn and the Arkham Intel Exchange

Introducing the Intel Economy
Originally published in the Arkham whitepaper.
The Arkham Intel Exchange connects people who want to buy and sell crypto intelligence. It is a decentralized intelligence economy where anyone can trade the native currency—ARKM—for information, such as entity labels, hacker tracing, and curated data feeds. Buyers request intelligence by placing bounties. Sellers offer intelligence by conducting auctions. Both bounties and auctions are conducted via audited smart contracts, with no centralized entity ever taking custody of funds.
By creating a market for intelligence, The Arkham Intel Exchange and accompanying DATA program (see section 3.6) allow people who generate intelligence to capture some of the value of their work—what we call "intel-to-earn". Intel-to-earn incentivizes the production of intelligence as a public good. These mechanisms are detailed in the following subpages.
