Thesis Topic


Framework for Transforming a Centralised Business Process to Decentralised Process Using DAOs


My thesis topic is to create a framework that would help to transform a centralised business process into a decentralised one. Application of the framework will be wide and general, such as voting for a project for a neighbourhood, employee promotion of a company, decentralising a publishing process via peer-to-peer review by the community, etc. The goal is to know the best way to adapt to decentralisation, and it could also help the mass in adapting to decentralisation.
