Paper Abstract

An important goal in P2P networks is that all peers provide resources. However, free riding and tragedy of common are real issues in P2P networks. To resolve these problems, most of the existing work is concerning probabilistic estimation to evaluate the trustworthiness or mechanism design to provide incentive. Instead of design a protocol to solve free riding, we build a micro-payment architecture for these existing protocols using virtual currency which can be more precisely measured and easily be replaced by reputation or other tokens. Our system can avoid from long-term trust learning interactions and high cost of collecting and analyzing reputation information. It can also provide peers incentive to truly report their connection type and security to malicious attacks.
