Shiva Jairam, Jaap Gordijn, Isaac da Silva Torres, Fadime Kaya, Marc X. Makkes
2021 International Workshop on Value Modeling and Business Ontologies  
We argue that, in order to arrive at a really decentralized eco-system where power is fairly distributed, the governance should be decentralized; in other words, it should not be in the hand of one controlling  ...  Blockchain systems are a new way to reduce or even eliminate the role of the middlemen in an eco-system.  ...  Fair governance in eco-systems We define governance in decentralized eco-systems as "the set of rules a system has to obey, and which are set by another system" [5] .  ...

Consensus protocols as a model of trust in blockchains

Auqib Hamid Lone, Roohie Naaz Mir
2019 International Journal of Blockchains and Cryptocurrencies  
Creating a global fair decentralised consensus protocol is of prime importance, in order to address above-mentioned requirements sufficiently.  ...  Parameters that are critical in evaluating blockchain consensus protocol are also discussed. This paper also analyses the hardness of achieving the fair decentralised trust with proof.  ...  The consensus in the permissionless setup is challenging, as there is no restriction on the number of nodes that can join the network and these nodes can be anonymous and untrusted.  ...
