Blockchain, as a constantly evolving Peer-to-Peer (P2P) distributed ledger technology with characteristics, such as decentralization, security, interoperation, and trust establishment, can potentially lower the costs of the underpinning infrastructure and maintenance compared with conventional centralized systems. Consequently, the distributed structure of blockchain is naturally suitable for the Internet of Things (IoT), which can be used to build secure and trusted IoT. Despite the advances made in applying blockchain to IoT in the past few years, some research challenges remain to be addressed, including the poor scalability, heterogeneous IoT devices, and the impact of integration on network performance.
