The Scalability of Trustless Trust [chapter]

Dominik Harz, Magnus Boman
2019 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
To explain the implications for scalability, we have implemented a trust model for smart contracts, described as agents in an open multi-agent system.  ...  The ramifications of these general conditions for scalability are analysed for Ethereum and then generalised to other current and future platforms.  ...  Acknowledgement The authors thank Babak Sadighi and Erik Rissanen for comments and discussions, Daniel Gillblad for important support for Magnus Boman's part of the project.  ...
