  title={Demo - Zelig: Customizable Blockchain Simulator},
  author={Ege Erdogan and Can Aydın and Oznur Ozkasap and Waris Gill},
As blockchain-based systems see wider adoption, it becomes increasingly critical to ensure their reliability, security, and efficiency. Running simulations is an effective method of gaining insights on the existing systems and analyzing potential improvements. However, many of the existing blockchain simulators have various shortcomings that yield them insufficient for a wide range of scenarios. In this demo paper, we present Zelig: our blockchain simulator designed with the main goals of… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper


A Systematic Review and Empirical Analysis of Blockchain Simulators
This work provides the first and an up-to-date systematic review and empirical analysis of blockchain simulators, which are easily extensible and can test the performance of distributed ledgers using different settings and parameters on a single computer. Expand
Performance Evaluation of Blockchain Systems: A Systematic Survey
A systematic survey on the blockchain performance evaluation is conducted by categorizing all reviewed solutions into two general categories, namely, empirical analysis and analytical modelling. Expand
On the Security and Performance of Proof of Work Blockchains
This paper introduces a novel quantitative framework to analyse the security and performance implications of various consensus and network parameters of PoW blockchains and devise optimal adversarial strategies for double-spending and selfish mining while taking into account real world constraints.
