Blockchains enable financial exchange and collective agreements between many participants that are immutable and independent of a central authority. These “trustless” protocols can be used as a platform for building a digital economy for autonomous agents. Fully autonomous systems have the potential to deliver great economic and social benefits in many market sectors, including energy, transport and financial services. We present an introduction to the fundamentals of blockchains and an interpretation of these technologies as multi-agent systems. The processing nodes or agents can be viewed as vertices in a peer-to-peer network.
