The blockchain mining process needs to solve a proof-of-work problem (PoW). Due to insufficient computing resources of the mobile device itself, as well as the insufficient computing power, the demand for computing power of the mining process cannot be met. In this paper, by constructing the mobile blockchain application model, aiming at maximizing system revenue and using the constraints of network resources as constraints, the paper allocates the network resource allocation mechanism to the mobile blockchain and realizes the effective use of blockchain technology in mobile applications. The resource allocation between adjacent devices can be modeled as a two-way auction model, and the optimal price can be determined by solving Bayes–Nash equilibrium. In addition, the credible value evaluation model is also introduced in this mechanism to solve the trusted value of the node.
