Label

Ethereum Blockchain

Description

An Ethereum blockchain is a distributed database that maintains a continuously-growing list of records called *blocks* secured from tampering and revision. Each block contains a timestamp and a link to a previous block in a Merkle tree structure.

Superclasses (2)

Usage

Instances of :Blockchain can have the following properties:

PROPERTYTYPEDESCRIPTIONRANGE
From class :Blockchain
:containsBlock owl:ObjectProperty Relates an Ethereum Blockchain to a Block that it contains. :Block
:containsCanonicalBlock owl:ObjectProperty Relates a blockchain to a canonical block that it contains. A canonical Block is the first block in a blockchain after a fork and that conforms to a new protocol variant. :Block
From class :EthOnConcept
:simpleDefinition owl:AnnotationProperty This property relates an EthOn concept to a definition in Simple English, intended especially for non-technical users. owl:Thing
:suggestedStringRepresentation owl:AnnotationProperty This property relates an EthOn concept with a suggested string representation. It can be used to give the term a name, e.g. in program code. owl:Thing
From class owl:Thing
:AccountObjectProperty owl:ObjectProperty Groups all EthOn account object properties owl:Thing
:BlockObjectProperty owl:ObjectProperty Groups all EthOn block object properties owl:Thing
:EthOnAnnotationProperty owl:AnnotationProperty Superclass of all EthOn specific annotation properties. owl:Thing
:EthOnDataProperty owl:DatatypeProperty Groups all data properties specific to EthOn. owl:Thing
:EthOnObjectProperty owl:ObjectProperty Groups all EthOn object properties owl:Thing
:MessageObjectProperty owl:ObjectProperty Groups all EthOn message object properties. owl:Thing
:NetworkDataProperty owl:DatatypeProperty Groups all EthOn network data properties. owl:Thing
:NetworkObjectProperty owl:ObjectProperty Groups all EthOn network object properties. owl:Thing
:StateObjectProperty owl:ObjectProperty Groups all EthOn state object properties. owl:Thing
:createsPostMsgState owl:FunctionalProperty Relates a message to the global state of the system after all the message has been executed. owl:Thing
:hasAccountStorage owl:FunctionalProperty Relates an account to the Merkle Patricia tree that encodes its storage contents at a certain account state. This property is Functional because an account state can have only one instance of account storage and inverse functional because an account storage can have only one associated account state. :AccountStorage
:hasTransition owl:ObjectProperty Relates a state to a transition (i.e. a message) that creates a new state. owl:Thing
:partOf owl:ObjectProperty This is a general relation to express part of relationships. The classic study of parts and wholes, mereology, has three axioms: 1. the part-of relation is Transitive - "parts of parts are parts of the whole" - If A is part of B and B is part of C, then A is part of C Reflexive - "Everything is part of itself" - A is part of A Antisymmetric - "Nothing is a part of its parts" - if A is part of B and A != B then B is not part of A. owl:Thing
