Accounting Technologies for Anti-Rival Coordination and Allocation

Digital goods – based fundamentally on digitally storable, replicable, and transmittable information – require redefining business models, altering operational structures, and adopting strategic change. In ATARCA, we focus on anti-rivalry to promote an efficient economy of digital goods. At the concrete level, ATARCA is creating accounting systems based on anti-rival cryptographic tokens to promote a more efficient digital economy. We are testing the tokens’ applications in three use cases and aim to provide an evidence-based foundation for anti-rival compensation and governance solutions.



IDBM’s role within the ATARCA consortium is focused upon the research goals of ATARCA, as well as taking an active role in completing various deliverables within the project. This means that IDBM faculty is involved as active researchers within the project - for example looking at topics such as business model research, data commons, decentralized and digital citizenship and more. On a project management level, Ville Eloranta serves as the Principal Investigator (PI) for the entire ATARCA Project, and IDBM has been closely involved since the very beginning of this project. Other IDBM faculty members involved in the project are Claire Shaw, Annika Bengts, Claudia Treuthardt, and Apurva Ganoo.
