With the development of Internet of Things (IoT), edge computing becomes more and more prevalent currently. However, edge computing needs to deploy a large number of edge servers to reduce the communication latency, which will bring additional costs to the system. Although there exist some idle computing resources at the edge, the owners distrust each other and lack the incentives to contribute to the system. In this article, we propose a new edge computing platform decentralized and trusted…
