New kids on the block: an analysis of modern blockchains [article]

Luke Anderson, Ralph Holz, Alexander Ponomarev, Paul Rimba, Ingo Weber
2016 arXiv   pre-print
Modern blockchains feature services such as name registration and smart contracts. Some employ new forms of consensus, such as proof-of-stake instead of proof-of-work.  ...  In this paper, we explore three representative, modern blockchains---Ethereum, Namecoin, and Peercoin. Our focus is on the features that set them apart from the pure currency use case of Bitcoin.  ...  An analysis of Ethereum is one of our main contributions: we show the development of the blockchain and give fundamental statistics that describe its use.  ...
