报告摘要: Bitcoin is a successful and interesting example of a global scale peer-to-peer cryptocurrency that integrates many techniques and protocols from cryptography, distributed systems, and databases. The main underlying data structure is blockchain, a scalable fully replicated structure that is shared among all participants and guarantees a consistent view of all user transactions by all participants in the cryptocurrency system. The novel aspect of Blockchain is that historical data about currency transactions is maintained in the absence of any central authority. This property of Blockchain has given rise to the possibility that future applications will transition from centralized databases to a fully decentralized storage based on blockchains. In this talk, the first tutorial style half will develop an understanding of the basic protocols used in blockchain, and elaborate on its main advantages and limitations. The second half is motivated by the proliferation of different crypto currencies where users need to atomically exchange assets among them without depending on centralized intermediaries such as exchanges.  We therefore present the first decentralized all-or-nothing atomic cross-chain commitment protocol.  This protocol guarantees that either all currency exchanges in an atomic cross-chain transaction are redeemed or all of them are refunded..
