What is it about?

This paper presents a pattern collection for realising governance for blockchain. We analysed the lifecycle of a blockchain platform, and identified 18 architectural patterns for blockchain governance. Specifically, we present 14 patterns using the pattern form. The intended audience of this pattern language is software architects and developers, and researchers who are interested in the governance of blockchain. The pattern language can advance the design of governance-driven blockchain systems. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first paper presenting patterns for blockchain governance.

Why is it important?

There is a steep learning curve for practitioners to design and choose governance methods appropriate for their systems. Having systematic and holistic guidance can assist system architects and developers to determine who is involved in a governance method and when to perform the method.
