All types of transactions such as purchase orders, payments, account
tracking and delivery tracking may take place every single second. The
business goal is to ensure the smooth completion of end-to-end
transactions and reduce vulnerabilities. More and more people are
looking at a new technology - Blockchain. A blockchain – originally
blockchain – is a continuously growing list of records, called blocks,
which are linked and secured using cryptography. Each block contains
typically a hash pointer as a link to a previous block, a timestamp
and transaction data. By design, blockchains are inherently resistant
to modification of the data.

A blockchain is an open, distributed ledger that can record
transactions between two parties efficiently and in a verifiable and
permanent way. As a promising technique to achieve decentralized
consensus, Blockchain helps achieve benefits critical to enterprises
and create extraordinary opportunities for businesses to come together
in new ways. Particularly in finance, it has been successfully applied
to digital cryptocurrencies and Blockchain-based systems have received
significant attention in both academia and industry.
Book co-editors intend to invite experts and successful case
participating members to contribute discussions on topics related to
performance, benchmarking, durability, robustness, as well data
gathering and management, algorithms, analytics techniques for
transactions processing and implementation of applications.

* Topics
Topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Theories of blockchain and its evolution
- Applications with blockchain technique
- Protocols and algorithms based on blockchain
