Blockchain technology is seen as a system with a lot of potentials that will be used in many places, from banking to medicine. It is based on a special way for member elements to send and store information.

Blocks are used to store information. When one block is broken, the whole system knows right away.

Even though it can be used in a lot of different ways, it has a few problems that make it hard to scale up. For example, it can take a long time to figure out how each block works. Because of this, the system’s throughput goes down and the wait time goes up.

Mathematicians at RUDN built a model that improved the system’s performance by almost 1.5 times by combining blockchain technology with optimization techniques.

“Blockchain technology has changed the way data is processed and stored in terms of trust and safety. Blockchain made it possible to move processing to a secure platform that wasn’t controlled by one person. It is rightly thought of as a useful technology of the future that will help many fields.

Ammar Muthanna, Ph.D., a junior researcher at RUDN University’s Scientific Center for Modeling High-tech Systems and Info communication Modeling, said that limited bandwidth is a “bottleneck” for blockchain applications.

Mathematicians have made a system that can control traffic intelligently. This is done with a hybrid model that uses both the so-called particle swarm method of optimization and fuzzy logic.

To find the best delay time, send rate, and a number of transactions, you need the particle swarm method. Traffic control is now automated with the help of fuzzy logic. Mathematicians from RUDN University tried out the model on the service for clinical trials and then compared the results to other choices.

Mathematicians from RUDN University used a system for clinical trials that has five parts: a patient, a research doctor, a coordinator, a researcher, and a chief doctor. Each participant has their own set of tasks and information that he needs to share with other participants. The blockchain network is used to handle the processing of clinical data.

The new method increased the network’s capacity and cut down on delays. The speed of transactions went up by 38.5%, and latency went down by 40%. The considered service is not the only thing that comes into play. This model can be used for other tools that use the blockchain.

“People think that latency and throughput are the two most important performance metrics that show how well an information system works. The model that was suggested made the network better by maximizing throughput and reducing latency.

It can be easily added to other blockchain-based platforms to make them more productive, according to Ammar Muthanna, Ph.D., a junior researcher at RUDN University’s Scientific Center for Modeling High-tech Systems and Info communication Modeling.
