Seminar by Onder Gürcan


Due to the open and dynamic nature of blockchain systems, the participants (user and miner agents) have to take into account the uncertain constraints (e.g., the transaction confirmation times, the delays in the network, and the topology of the network) during their decision-making processes for carefully balancing their objectives. One of such objective is to operate in a fair environment. This is important since agents may decide to leave the system if they cannot fulfil this objective, which may imply reduced security and sustainability of the system. In this talk, probabilistic decision-making approaches based on utility and rewards for both user and miner agents to tackle fairness will be proposed and future perspectives on decision-making under uncertainty in blockchain systems will be provided.
