Book Title: Trust Models for Next-generation Blockchain Ecosystems
Indexing: This series is indexed in Scopus, Ei Compendex, Google Scholar, and zbMATH.
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.
