Incentivizing Participants

About the Project

If a blockchain is an open and decentralized system, it is essential to design each system component to be incentive-compatible (IC), where every participant can achieve the best outcome by simply acting according to their true preferences.

Yet, various actors may not follow this desired behavior, especially if the protocol or application is not IC. The Connection Lab is using quantitative analysis, such as queueing theory and game theory, to determine how to address this challenge.
