Blockchain project

Bruno Biais (CNRS-CRM-TSE), Christophe Bisière (CRM-TSE), Matthieu Bouvard (McGill University) and Catherine Casamata (CRM-TSE) receive funding from the Institute  Europlace of Finance for their research project on Blockchain technology.
A blockchain is a digital distributed database, that works without a central control centre. This open decentralised technology is relatively inexpensive, is secure, and it is the foundations of many applications, such as Bitcoin or “smart contracts” Ethereum. The subject of the research will study the stability of blockchain systems, in particular, their capacity to preserve a consensus regarding the information they obtain.
