A fair peer-to-peer market place should protect intellectual properties as well as account peers that act as distributors of the source.

Abstract

A fair peer-to-peer market place should protect intellectual properties as well as account peers that act as distributors of the source. FairPeers is a scheme in which some central authorities are necessary, with the drawback that when the number of transactions grows, these entities can represent single points of failure. This paper proposes a generic model to analytically evaluate such a market place and estimate its performance in terms of scalability w.r.t. the total number of printed coins and the overall transactions that can occur in the given peer-to-peer system.
