Network Goods

Network Goods, as the term suggests, are goods that exist within or benefit from network effects, including things like language and internet infrastructure. Arcological focuses on non-excludable goods like public goods and commons, especially where revenue generation could negatively impact their value. By prioritizing Network Goods within the digital economy (including Web3, Web2, and AI), Arcological supports the development of open-source protocols, tools, and infrastructure to accelerate innovation and collaboration, while ensuring that these efforts align with ethical concerns and AI safety.

Network Capital (NC)

Building upon the concept of Network Goods, Network Capital is a strategic approach to funding and supporting projects in the public goods space, encompassing domains in the area of Web2, Web3, AI and among others. Unlike profit-focused Venture Capital, Network Capital prioritizes innovation, sustainability, and long-term impact, considering ethical implications and safety. It provides resources, expertise, and support to project teams, empowering them to develop and scale their solutions while contributing to ecosystem growth. The focus lies on high risk, high reward innovation, with an aim to maximize positive network externalities, thus benefiting broader communities without compromising value or accessibility.

Network Capital Pools (NCP)

A Network Capital Pool (NCP) is a pool of funds structured, often against a specifically scoped public goods thesis, driven by Network Capital Funders, Arcological and/or Network Capital Advisor(s). Early pools span various areas, including IPFS and Private Retrieval, with flexibility for diverse future initiatives. NCP aimsaim to overcome multi-funder inefficiencies and coordination challenges, fostering a collaborative approach and synergy among stakeholders. This collective method not only simplifies the funding process but also enhances the strategy to progress common goals in the digital technology ecosystem.
