The Byzantine Generals Problem

TLDR
It is shown that, using only oral messages, the problem of a group of generals camped with their troops around an enemy city is solvable if and only if more than two-thirds of the generals are loyal; so a single traitor can confound two loyal generals.

Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System

TLDR
This work proposes a solution to the double-spending problem using a peer-to-peer network, where the network timestamps transactions by hashing them into an ongoing chain of hash-based proof-of-work, forming a record that cannot be changed without redoing the proof- of-work.

Double-spending fast payments in bitcoin

TLDR
It is shown that, unless appropriate detection techniques are integrated in the current Bitcoin implementation, double-spending attacks on fast payments succeed with overwhelming probability and can be mounted at low cost.

TLDR
A distributed model for describing the states enclosed in a Bitcoin network is provided and concepts for modeling the swarm behavior of Bitcoin are analyzed.

Byzantine Consensus from Moderately-Hard Puzzles : A Model for Bitcoin

TLDR
A proof is a proof that the Bitcoin protocol achieves consensus in this model, except for a negligible probability, when Byzantine faults make up less than half the network.

Hashcash - A Denial of Service Counter-Measure

TLDR
This paper captures in one place the various applications, improvements suggested and related subsequent publications, and describes initial experience from experiments using hashcash.
