Blockchain has received a widespread attention because of its decentralized, tamper-proof, and transparent nature. Blockchain works over the principle of distributed, secured, and shared ledger, which is used to record, and track data within a decentralized network. This technology has successfully replaced certain systems of economic transactions in organizations and has the potential to overtake various industrial business models in future. Blockchain works over peer-to-peer (P2P) phenomenon… Expand
A Regulatable Blockchain Transaction Model with Privacy Protection
TLDR
A blockchain transaction model with both privacy and supervision function is proposed, which uses probability encryption to realize the hiding of the true identity of the blockchain transaction, and uses the commitment scheme and zero-knowledge proof technology to realize privacy protection and guarantee legitimacy verification of the transaction.
