Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The technology that is most likely to change the corporate world in the next ten years is not social networks, big data, cloud computing, robots; 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 a good prospect in effectively solving the trust problem between the parties to the transaction. Credit is the basis 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. Therefore, we can try to combine blockchain and smart contract technology to make various applications possible. These applications include symmetry and asymmetry in mathematics, computer engineering, science, etc.
