Synopsis

Nikos Karagiannidis

Software updates are vital for decentralized governance. However, updating a blockchain can be hard. Decentralized software updates for blockchains are harder still. This research work aims to help bring Cardano closer to this goal, with a proposal for a secure and efficient update mechanism that decentralizes software updates.
