Trust Mends Blockchains: Living up to Expectations

Leila Bahri, Sarunas Girdzijauskas
2019 2019 IEEE 39th International Conference on Distributed Computing Systems (ICDCS)  
PoW relies on demonstration of computational power, and comes with the markup of huge energy wastage in return of the stake in cyrpto-currency.  ...  In our PoT construction, peer trust is extracted from a trust network that emerges in a decentralized manner and is used as a waiver for the effort to be spent for PoW, thus dramatically reducing total  ...  We do no consider these values in weithing edges as we assign our own based on different experimental setups as is shown below.  ...
