Token-based accounting and distributed pricing to introduce market mechanisms in a peer-to-peer file sharing scenario
- Conference Paper
We present a token-based accounting mechanism that alleviates the free riding problem in P2P networks. The approach is complemented by distributed pricing as a flexible and viable scheme to incite users to share valuable content and to efficiently balance requests among all peers based on economic decisions. © 2003 IEEE.
