Abstract: This workshop opens a forum to present the recent research work related to blockchain-based technologies, e.g. smart contracts, threat and attack models, and incentive mechanisms. Moreover, research on other aspects inherently present in blockchain-based applications, like the Internet of Things, smart grid, e-health, logistics, etc. are also invited in this workshop.
This workshop seeks original unpublished papers focusing on theoretical analysis, emerging applications, novel system architecture construction and design, experimental studies, and social impacts of blockchain.
