Decentralized systems based on distributed hash tables (DHTs) have received a lot of attention during the past decade, and systems based on this technology are now in production use. In this series of lectures, we cover the main technical challenges in decentralized systems (self-organization, robustness, security, incentives), study important state-of-the-art technologies, and discuss important classes of applications, and some deployed systems. Finally, we introduce accountability techniques, which can provide fault detection, transparency and trust in decentralized systems.
