Advances in Cryptocurrencies and Proofs of Work
Crypto RUB » Lehre (German) » Abschlussarbeiten

Bitcoin is a decentralized anonymous electronic currency that recently
gained broad attention reaching a market capitalization of more than 3
billion dollars. The main technical innovation of the Bitcoin network
is the blockchain which uses the Proofs of Work to realize Byzanntine
agreement in a non-trusted P2P environment. Depending on the interest
of the student, the Master thesis can either focus on more
implementation aspects of the Bitcoin / Proof of Work concept or on
more theoretical questions, e.g., security proofs of the Bitcoin
system, new applications etc.

The following is a list of literature to get a feeling for potential
directions, but please contact me for further information:
