Abstract

Crowdsourcing has been pursued as a way to leverage the power of the crowd for many different purposes in diverse sectors from collecting information, aggregating funds, and gathering employees to perform tasks of different sizes among other targets. Data integrity and nonrepudiation are of utmost importance in these systems and are currently not guaranteed. Blockchain technology has been proven to improve on these aspects. In this article, we investigate the benefits that the adoption of Blockchain technology can bring in crowdsourcing systems. To this end, we provide examples of real-life crowdsourcing use cases and explore the benefits of using Blockchain, mainly as a database.
