Title: Introduction to Blockchain and Applications of Game Theory
Dusit Niyato, Ph.D., IEEE Fellow, Nangyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore
Blockchain has emerged as a new ledger technology for data and transactions management. This decentralized ledger technology relies on consensus protocols and incentive mechanisms among a number of participants, i.e., miners and users, to achieve high data security and integrity. However, the participants are rational and will act according to their interests. As such, game theory appears to be a suitable tool to analyze and optimize the blockchain networks. In this talk, we will present the basics of game theory and review some typical game models such as non-cooperative game, hierarchical game, and evolutionary game that are adopted in blockchain. Then, the game formulations for mining pool management, computing resource allocation, and risk management in blockchain networks will be presented. Some research directions will be also discussed.
Dusit Niyato is currently a professor in the School of Computer Science and Engineering and, by courtesy, School of Physical & Mathematical Sciences, at the Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.
