ENTAIL students Caixiang (Stephen) Fan and Sara Ghaemi just published a systematic survey on Performance Evaluation of Blockchain Systems in IEEE Access. Working with ECE professor Petr Musilek and EECS colleague Hamzeh Khazaei (York University), they review this important aspect of this distributed ledger technology with applications ranging from cryptocurrency to energy. They categorize empirical and analytical approaches to evaluation and extract important criteria for selecting the most suitable blockchain evaluation techniques.
ECE student Sara Ghaemi just published an article on an Open Blockchain-based Serverless Platform called ChainFaaS in IEEE Access. Working with ECE professor Petr Musilek and EECS colleague Hamzeh Khazaei (York University), Sara developed an open, public, blockchain-based serverless platform (https://www.chainfaas.com/) that takes advantage of the unused computational capacity of personal computers to run serverless tasks.
