We consider a new blockchain empowered federated learning approach which uses wireless mobile miners at drones in the future sixth generation (6G) networks for a disaster response system. Our focus is on the blockchain latency, and energy consumption in the proposed architecture of the network of drones. Maintaining low delay in wireless communication between the drones is required to minimize blockchain forking events while performing blockchain operations. Therefore, we quantify the…
