Blockchain is emerging as a disruptive, and transformational technology, with great potential, benefits, and impact in organizations and government services. Blockchain offers an innovative approach to storing information, executing transactions, performing functions, and establishing trust in an open environment. The pervasiveness of blockchain technology in a variety of fields is changing our lives. Industry, agriculture, health, and even personal life are experiencing a revolution in the way personal data are collected, communicated, processed, and stored. In recent years, blockchain technology has begun to be used in full swing. Many consider blockchain as a technology breakthrough for cryptography and cybersecurity, with use cases ranging from globally deployed cryptocurrency systems like Bitcoin, smart contracts, smart grids over the Internet of Things, and so forth. Although blockchain has received growing interest in both academia and industry in the recent years, the security and privacy of blockchains continue to be at the center of the debate when deploying blockchain in different applications.
