Outline of Moshan Lab

The joint virtual lab "Moshan Blockchain Lab at the University of Glasgow" has been launched on 21st October 2021. The lab was co-founded by the University of Glasgow and the blockchain company VBHLedger. Research of this lab focuses on blockchain fundamentals, algorithms and testbeds.

Research background and scope

Originally proposed as the backbone technology of bitcoin cryptocurrency, blockchain has become a revolutionary decentralised data management framework that can transform the way in which we share information. It offers immutable, transparent, secure and auditable ledger in a trust-less distributed environment, to verify the integrity and traceability of information/assets during their life cycle. Moreover, without a central authority’s involvement, blockchain-enabled smart contracts can significantly reduce manual interventions and thus improve efficiency.

In order to make this radically disruptive technology viable for various vertical sectors, there are several issues to be addressed, such as node scalability (because of the bandwidth burden), user privacy issues (because of the transparency feature), and the high performance p2p discover and chain building protocols and algorithms. This joint virtual lab aims to address the above challenges and apply blockchain technology to many industry sectors.
