Research Papers

Redbelly Blockchain results from more than fifteen years of expertise in the field of distributed systems developed in research institutes among the best in the USA, France, Switzerland and Australia.

Smart Redbelly Blockchain: Reducing Congestion for Web3

Decentralization promises to remedy the drawbacks of the web by executing decentralized applications (DApps) on blockchains. Unfortunately, modern blockchains cannot support realistic web application workloads mainly due to congestion. We introduce the Smart Redbelly Blockchain (SRBB), a provably correct permissionless blockchain.

Diablo: A Benchmark Suite for Blockchains

With the recent advent of blockchains, we have witnessed a plethora of blockchain proposals. In this paper, we propose the most extensive evaluation of blockchain to date.

Blockchain Scalability and its Foundations in Distributed Systems
This book, authored by Vincent Gramoli, has been published by Springer in August 2022, ISBN:978-3-031-12577-5, 2022.
It explains the techniques used to design a scalable blockchain, the Redbelly Blockchain, and is used as a textbook for the online Blockchain Scalability course by Coursera.
Yellow paper: Redbelly Blockchain: a Combination of Recent Advances

Redbelly Blockchain builds upon recent scientific advances in the context of distributed computing game theory and formal verification to apply blockchains to the real world. In this paper, we present how Redbelly Blockchain combines these results to remedy vulnerabilities that affect modern blockchains.

Redbelly: A Secure, Fair and Scalable Open Blockchain

As blockchain has found applications to track ownership of digital assets, it is crucial for companies to adopt more secure blockchains than the ones proven vulnerable to network attacks before moving them in production.

Anonymity Preserving Byzantine Vector Consensus

Collecting anonymous opinions finds various applications ranging from simple whistleblowing, releasing secretive information, to complex forms of voting, where participants rank candidates by order of preferences.

Comchain: Community Blockchain

In this paper, we introduce the community blockchain that bridges the gap between these public blockchains and constrained blockchains.

From Blockchain Consensus Back to Byzantine Consensus

In this paper, we discuss the mainstream blockchain consensus algorithms and how the classic Byzantine consensus can be revisited for the blockchain context. In particular, we discuss proof-of-work consensus and illustrate the differences between the Bitcoin and the Ethereum proof-of-work consensus algorithms.

Polygraph: Accountable Byzantine Consensus

In this paper, we introduce Polygraph, the first accountable Byzantine consensus algorithm.

DBFT: Efficient Leaderless Byzantine Consensus and its Applications

This paper introduces a new leaderless Byzantine consensus called the Democratic Byzantine Fault Tolerance (DBFT) for blockchains.
