Knowledge Blockchains

In this research project we investigate how blockchain technologies can be used in the domain of enterprise modeling. Thereby it is of particular interest how the information stored in semi-formal and formal conceptual models (e.g. business process models, enterprise architecture models, ontologies) can be stored and processed in a blockchain.

The following publications in this context have so far appeared:
