Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Following the success of the first Special Issue of Symmetry, titled “Symmetric and Asymmetric Encryption in Blockchain”, it is my pleasure to be the Guest Editor for a second Special Issue.

The technology that is most likely to change the corporate world in the next ten years is not social networks, big data, cloud computing, or robots, and not even artificial intelligence, but blockchain. The main characteristics of blockchain technology are decentralization, high credibility, versatility, transparency, autonomy, non-changeable information, anonymity, traceability, irreversibility, intelligence, reward mechanism, and other characteristics. Blockchain technology is essentially a decentralized and open and transparent distributed database maintained by the collective. It has the characteristics of reliability and high confidentiality and has good prospects in effectively solving the trust problem between the parties and the transaction. Credit is the foundation for the production and maintenance of social relations between people and organizations. At present, people mainly use regulations, systems, laws, contracts, etc., to restrict credit problems. These methods cannot solve the credit problem due to many human subjective factors. Blockchain can achieve collaboration and trust between multiple entities through smart contracts, thereby expanding the scope and depth of mutual cooperation between roles. Symmetry is one of the most important notions in natural science.
