Blockchain technology has received increased interests in recent years, from both the scientiﬁc community and the industry. Due to tremendous potential, this technology is now actively being explored and implemented in almost all industry verticals. According to a survey by World Economic forum, blockchain is anticipated to account for 10% of GDP in less than 10 years. In 2017, $8B was invested in blockchain start-ups and over $3B in revenue from the blockchain enterprise sector.
