International Workshop on Blockchain and Data Management
会议地点: Macau, China
Since the invention of Bitcoin in 2008, blockchain has emerged as a potential technology to disrupt traditional database systems. Over the past decade, it has found numerous applications in finance, IoT, healthcare, supply chain, e-commerce, and so on, and is becoming a hot research area. In contrast to traditional database systems, blockchain is decentralized, immutable, and cryptographically secured, where no single entity has full control. This new technology has significantly changed the way of data access, storage, retrieval and information discovery. It presents many fundamental research challenges for management of data in blockchain.
