Comparison of Algorithms used in Blockchain-based Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (MANETs)
Dr. Sangheethaa .S | Dr. Arun Korath 
Abstract: Blockchain-based mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) are gaining popularity in recent years due to their high reliability and secure transactions. In a blockchain-based MANET, nodes are more vulnerable to attacks due to the dynamic nature of the network, which can make it challenging to maintain network security. While Proof of Work (PoW) can be effective in maintaining consensus in a MANET environment, it presents several challenges such as limited resources, network latency, security, energy consumption, and scalability. Byzantine Fault Tolerance (BFT) is a concept in distributed computing that refers to a system's ability to tolerate failures or attacks by nodes that behave maliciously or fail in unexpected ways. In this paper, we discuss the challenges faced in Software-Defined Networking (SDN) in Blockchain MANET. In summary, SDN and BFT are two different approaches to improving the performance, resilience, and security of distributed networks.
