I have successfully set up a blockchain system, and run experiments to familiarize with how it works and the involved processes. My first draft of the paper is mostly complete and will be ready by the deadline tonight. It will not be a complete paper, as the evaluation and conclusion sections will be mostly empty. Advice and consultation from Ajit on the paper is making me restructure some things, and has given me a better reference point for what is required and expected. The paper right now also does not have direct citations to any of the references, as the documentation on how that part works is confusing me. I decided to move that part of the work to the second draft.
