  • University of Chicago: Economic Differences in Distributed Databases to Blockchains
    • "The main difference between blockchains and distributed databases is that in blockchains the validating nodes are independent entities maximizing their own payoff when deciding whether to follow protocol or misbehave.

      In a new paper with Zhiguo He and Jiasun Li, we characterize conditions when a consensus can be reached in such an environment with payoff-maximizing validators. We show that the ``old’’ equilibrium of distributed databases still holds, but it’s fragile. Instead, there are other equilibria, which may result in indifferences in designs of blockchains and distributed databases."
