Our paper titled “Revisiting Double-Spending Attacks on the Bitcoin Blockchain: New Findings” is going to appear in IEEE / ACM International Symposium on Quality of Service 2021 (IWQoS 2021), which is going to be held on June 25-28, 2021.
Although double-spending attacks (DSA) have created a giant loss to Bitcoin, we believe that advanced versions of DSA can be developed to create new threats for the Bitcoin ecosystem. To this end, this paper presents a new type of double-spending attack, named Adaptive DSA.
Through the proposed analytical model and the disclosed insights behind Adaptive DSA, we aim to Alert the PoW-based cryptocurrency ecosystem that the threat of double-spending attacks is still at a high level.
