The PuB’s mission is to investigate and extend the foundations and applications of blockchains and decentralized ledger technology. The lab’s approach is a practice-driven methodology to solving pressing problems in the blockchain ecosystem, by means of interdisciplinary research combining ideas from cryptography, distributed computing and systems, and game theory.
Blockchain is an emerging technology with the potential to transform several aspects of modern society. The Purdue Blockchain Lab (in short, The PuB) at the Computer Science Department of Purdue University brings together expertise from various areas relevant to the technology, inlcuding:
- Secure Multi-Party Computation
- Distributed Computing and Distributed Ledgers
- Computer Security and Privacy
- Economics and Computation
