In this presentation, we will analyse from the game theoretical point of view Byzantine Fault Tolerant (BFT) blockchains when processes exhibit rational or Byzantine behaviour. Our work models committee/consensus-based blockchains, such as as a committee coordination game.
We provide a game-theoretical methodology to analyse equilibrium interactions between Byzantine and rational committee members in BFT blockchains.
Byzantine players seek to inflict maximum damage to the system, while rational players best-respond to maximise their expected net gains.
We then derive conditions under which consensus properties are satisfied or not in equilibrium.
