Towards Blockchain and Semantic Web

Cano-Benito, Juan; Cimmino, Andrea; García-Castro, Raúl


Blockchain has become a pervasive technology in a wide number of sectors like industry, research, and academy. In the last decade a large number of tailored-domain problems have been solved thanks to the blockchain. Due to this reason, researchers expressed their interest in combining the blockchain with other well-known technologies, like Semantic Web. Unfortunately, as far as we known, in the literature no one has presented the different scenarios in which Semantic Web and blockchain can be combined, and the further benefits for both. In this paper, we aim a providing an in-depth view of the beneficial symbiotic relation that these technologies may reach together and report the different scenarios that we have identified in the literature to combine Semantic Web and blockchain.
