Exploring the challenges of Wireless Blockchain Networks and the relationship between communication and performance.
In this talk, wireless blockchain networks (WBN), with different network topology and communication protocols, for various commonly used blockchain consensus consensuses are discussed.
We discover the challenges of WBN, and the relationship between the communication in terms of spectrum and power provision, and the wireless blockchain network performance in terms of scalability, throughput and latency, and security.
We try to answer one important question which is how much communication resource is needed to run a wireless blockchain network.
