Abstract: Blockchain is a unique technology that supports large amount of transactions and smart contracts in the Internet of Things (IoT) system, owing to the distributed computing mechanisms. In a general blockchain network, the status of an account will be stored and updated by a verifier, interconnected in a p2p rule. The characters of IoT devices are relatively lower computation, lower power consumption, and using wireless network with lower bandwidth. The IoT device should connected to one or several blockchain nodes to submit transactions or validate the relevant transactions. When interacting with the blockchain nodes, IoT devices will send and receive large number of network packet with blockchain node. In this work, I summarize a typical IoT blockchain architecture and analyze the vital point of generating traffic between blockchain nodes in the IoT environment. I also model the traffic of different blockchains in the IoT environment as well as analyzed and extracted the model with numeric simulations.
