Blockchain shows great potential to be applied in wireless IoT ecosystems for establishing the trust and consensus mechanisms without central authority’s involvement. Based on RAFT consensus mechanism, this paper investigates the security performance of wireless blockchain networks in the presence of malicious jamming. We first map and model the blockchain transaction as a wireless network composed of uplink and downlink transmissions by assuming the follower nodes’ position as a Poisson Point Process (PPP) with selected leader location. The probability of achieving successful blockchain transactions is derived and verified by extensive simulations. The results provide analytical guidance for the practical deployment of wireless blockchain networks.
