What's Arithmetica?

Arithmetica is an open source, decentralized, network of computers powered by Ethereum. This gives researchers access to free computational power and the rest of us an opportunity to contribute by simply visiting a website.

Designed for Collaboration & Breakthroughs

Explore Problems or Define Your Own

Find a problem that you’re interested in or use the editor to define your own that others can contribute to.

Contribute to Their Advancement

Just by visiting a problem’s page, your computer will automatically begin computing it.

Discuss the Results

Join discussions about the problem and it’s data.

The Benefits of Arithmetica

Altruistic Model

Free computation. No transaction fees or incentivization costs.

Decentralized Command

No recurring infrastructure cost or single point of failure means greater uptime.


It is easy to create new problems for others to join.

Emergent Control

Participants self-organize to complete complex tasks by following relatively simple rules.

Browser Compatible

Getting started is as simple as clicking on a link.

"Mathematics is not a deductive science - that’s a cliche. When you try to prove a theorem, you don’t just list the hypotheses, and start to reason. What you do is trial and error, experimentation, guesswork. You want to find out what the facts are, and what you do is in that respect similar to what a laboratory technician does.”

- Paul Halmos

Use Cases


Odd Perfect Number Conjecture

Perfect numbers are positive integers that are the sum of their proper divisors. The smallest perfect number is 6, which is the sum of 1,2, and 3. Other perfect numbers include 28, 496, 8128. No one knows if there exists any odd perfect numbers.


Explore numbers, visualize patterns and learn to code

Connect with a community of people that will inspire the next generation of mathematicians and scientists by sharing their knowledge in an unstoppable way.


Planet hunting

Use data made available from the Kepler space observatory to discover new planets.


Do you have a model that you want others to use? Host it on the distributed web and forget about the cost of servers.
