We present Accept, a simple, asynchronous transaction system that achieves perfect horizontal scaling. Usual blockchain-based transaction systems come with a fundamental throughput limitation as they require that all (potentially unrelated) transactions must be totally ordered. Such solutions thus require serious compromises or are outright unsuitable for large-scale applications, such as global retail payments. Accept provides efficient horizontal scaling without any limitation. To that end… Expand

ETHEREUM: A SECURE DECENTRALISED GENERALISED TRANSACTION LEDGER
TLDR
The blockchain paradigm when coupled with cryptographically-secured transactions has demonstrated its utility through a number of projects, with Bitcoin being one of the most notable ones, and Ethereum implements this paradigm in a generalised manner. Expand
Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System
A purely peer-to-peer version of electronic cash would allow online payments to be sent directly from one party to another without going through a financial institution. Digital signatures provideExpand
A Non-Consensus Based Decentralized Financial Transaction Processing Model with Support for Efficient Auditing
The success of Bitcoin has generated significant interest in the financial community to understand whether the technological underpinnings of the cryptocurrency paradigm can be leveraged to improveExpand
Mir-BFT: High-Throughput BFT for Blockchains
TLDR
Mir is a generalization of the celebrated and scrutinized PBFT protocol, with changes needed to accommodate novel features restricted to PBFT liveness, and achieves unprecedented throughput on WANs without sacrificing latency, robustness to malicious behavior, or even performance in clusters.

Analysis of the Bitcoin UTXO set
TLDR
This paper introduces a tool to study and analyze the UTXO set, along with a detailed description of the set format and functionality, and quantifies the difference between the two existing formats up to the date. Expand
Short Signatures from the Weil Pairing
TLDR
A short signature scheme based on the Computational Diffie-Hellman assumption on certain elliptic and hyperelliptic curves is introduced, designed for systems where signatures are typed in by a human or signatures are sent over a low-bandwidth channel. Expand
ABC: Proof-of-Stake without Consensus.
TLDR
A new permissionless blockchain architecture called ABC is introduced, which can implement the functionality of a cryptocurrency like Bitcoin, replacing Bitcoin's energy-hungry proof-of-work with a proof- of-stake validation. Expand

FastPay: High-Performance Byzantine Fault Tolerant Settlement
TLDR
This work demonstrates intra-continental confirmation latency of less than 100ms, making FastPay applicable to point of sale payments, and achieves over 80,000 transactions per second with 20 authorities---surpassing the requirements of current retail card payment networks, while significantly increasing their robustness.
