Article
Blockchain and the programs running on it, called Smart Contracts, are increasingly applied in all fields where trust and strong certifications are required. Our work focuses on industrial applications of blockchains, and not on cryptocurrencies or tokens. We use frameworks to compare public and permissioned blockchains, specifically suited for ind...

A key aspect for the efficiency and security of maritime transport is linked to the associated information flows. The optimal management of maritime transport requires the sharing of data in real-time between the various participating organizations. Moreover, as supply chains become increasingly integrated, the connectivity of stakeholders must be...

Agile methodologies aim to reduce software development risk using short iterations, feature-driven development, continuous integration, testing automation, and other practices. However, the risk of project failure or time and budget overruns is still a relevant problem. The aim of this paper is to present and discuss a new approach to model some ke...
Conference Paper
Seaports are part of a complex and information-intensive maritime supply chain that includes a set of organizations and operators who need to exchange a large amount of information and data with each other. As supply chains become increasingly integrated and connected, the connectivity of stakeholders must be ensured not only within individual port...

Supply chain management, product provenance and quality certification are among the first and most popular applications of blockchain technology, due to the inherent trust and inalterability provided by the blockchain technology. However, the proposed supply chain management systems based on blockchain and smart contract technology tend to be speci...

Blockchain software development is becoming more and more important for any modern software developer and IT startup. Nonetheless, blockchain software production still lacks of a disciplined, organized and mature development process, as demonstrated by the many and (in)famous failures and frauds occurred in recent years. In this paper we present AB...

In recent years Smart Contracts and DApps are becoming increasingly important and widespread thanks to the properties of blockchain technology. In most cases DApps are business critical, and very strict security requirements should be assured. Developing safe and reliable Smart Contracts, however, is not a trivial task. Several researchers have stu...
Article

In this article we forecast daily closing price series of Bitcoin, Litecoin and Ethereum cryptocurrencies, using data on prices and volumes of prior days. Cryptocurrencies price behaviour is still largely unexplored, presenting new opportunities for researchers and economists to highlight similarities and differences with standard financial prices....

The Blockchain and the programs running on it, called Smart Contracts, are more and more applied in all fields requiring trust and strong certifications. In this work we compare public and permissioned blockchains for industrial applications. We propose a complete, original solution based on Ethereum to implement a decentralized application. This s...

This paper studies how to forecast daily closing price series of Bitcoin, using data on prices and volumes of prior days. Bitcoin price behaviour is still largely unexplored, presenting new opportunities. We compared our results with two modern works on Bitcoin prices forecasting and with a well-known recent paper that uses Intel, National Bank sha...

Cryptocurrencies and their foundation technology, the Blockchain, are reshaping finance and economics, allowing a decentralized approach enabling trusted applications with no trusted counterpart. More recently, the Blockchain and the programs running on it, called Smart Contracts, are also finding more and more applications in all fields requiring...

Initial Coin Offerings (ICO) are public offers of new cryptocurrencies in exchange of existing ones, aimed to finance projects in the blockchain development arena. In the last 8 months of 2017, the total amount gathered by ICOs exceeded 4 billion US$, and overcame the venture capital funnelled toward high tech initiatives in the same period. A high...
