About this Research Topic
Privacy is a key aspect of blockchain and distributed ledger technology, including for example (i) technological issues of how to achieve sufficient levels of privacy without sacrificing integrity or performance, and (ii) novel applications to support interactions between members of a community where carefully controlled disclosure of private information is required. The former might for example include cryptographic methods or trusted execution environments, whereas the latter might include applications in health or finance.
This research topic welcomes submissions including technological methods, applications, reviews, commentaries, and policies, which address the issue of privacy within the blockchain and cryptography sphere.
Articles published within this Research Topic in 2019 are eligible for the $10,000 “Yun Family Frontiers in Blockchain Prize".
