Computation offloading has been considered as a viable solution to blockchain mining in mobile environments. In this paper, we present a two-layer computation offloading paradigm that includes an edge computing service provider (ESP) and a cloud computing service provider (CSP). We formulate a multi-leader multi-follower Stackelberg game to address the computing resource management problem in such a network, by jointly maximizing the profits of each service provider (SP) and the payoffs of…
