Welcome to our Purdue Blockchain Lab!
A blockchain is a distributed database that maintains a dynamic list of records, secured against tampering and revision. The main hypothesis is that the blockchain establishes a system of creating a distributed consensus in the digital online world. This allows participating entities to know for certain that a digital event happened by creating an incorruptible record in a public ledger. It opens the door for developing an open and scalable digital economy from a centralized one. This technology, and the people behind it, have the potential to impact billions of people and become a crucial part of daily life. We seek to push the envelope on the development of this technology with rigorous research.
The Purdue Blockchain Lab is a research group at Purdue University focusing on Blockchain and simulation, Blockchain for IoT and Supply Chain, Blockchain for Big Data and AI and its underlying technologies.
