Our manuscript “Proof-of-Play: A Novel Consensus Model for Blockchain-based Peer-to-Peer Gaming System” has been accepted to 2019 ACM International Symposium On Blockchain And Secure Critical Infrastructure (BSCI 2019).
Data storage in peer-to-peer (P2P) games in a perfect applications scenario for blockchain. However, suffering from high transaction cost and latency, proof-of-work (PoW) becomes the bottleneck of blockchain games. Many attempts have been made to overcome various limitations of blockchain for P2P games, but many of them require modifying the game itself to be compatible with a blockchain solution. These overheads often bring new undesirable results to deal with. In this work, we propose Proof-of-Play, a novel consensus model, to address these issues with a blockchain naturally integrated with P2P games, with minimum intervene to the game. The ultimate goal is to create a secure and fully decentralized architecture to transform a game being community-sustainable.
