The Blockchain concept originally emerged as a solution for decentralized cryptocurrency systems but has tremendous potential to revolutionize a wide range of industries. Blockchains are decentralized and distributed digital ledgers which can prove useful in areas such as healthcare, supply chain management, ‘internet of things’, banking, and law enforcement by providing a secure, immutable and decentralized data management system. However, fundamental research in Blockchain is still in its infancy and there are many open issues in networking, consensus or security worth investigating. We hope to advance the state-of-the-art in these areas by using powerful ideas from graph theory, dynamical systems, stochastic processes and game theory.
