Call for Book Chapters: Trust Models for Next-generation Blockchain Ecosystems: Submit by Aug 31

About the Book

Blockchain enables distributed ledger technologies over consensus-based decentralized computing networks. However, the openness of blockchain technology stacks to multiple competing participants creates mistrust among all participants (i.e. end-users, decentralized application developers, blockchain network operators, regulators, and general public) in the blockchain ecosystems. Considering the fast growth in blockchain research, we aim to edit a book covering the trust issues in various blockchain ecosystems running in public, private, consortium, and cloud environments.
This book will provide a comprehensive discussion on various trust factors involving security, anonymization, reputation, governance, economic models, and other relevant determinants. The book will cover various topics in breadth and depth. In addition, it will set the foundation to involve the readers in understanding the core theories supplemented with technical and experimental discussion.


Topics of Interest Includes but not limited to:

  • Privacy by design
  • Security models
  • Incentive mechanisms
  • Lack of decentralization
  • Compute-inefficiency
  • Time-inefficiency
  • Regulatory uncertainty
  • Lack of trust among network peers
  • Inability to scale
  • Intellectual property concerns
  • Audit/compliance concerns
  • Lack of standardization
  • Lack of interoperability
  • Lack of understanding
