Intuitively there is drastic distinction between the “pure” decentralized block-chain systems like Defis and those that only utilizes block-chain as an enhancing technology but remains centralized with real-world business model and conventional technologies like database, application server etc. Our study explores extensively this distinction from a methodological point of view, classifies them into blockchain-complete and blockchainpartial, analyzes key features of the two types, and reveal… Expand
