Mobile Crowd Sensing (MCS) presents numerous and unique research challenges most of them based on the fact that human participation is in the loop.

To solve them, we present PaySense, a general framework for user rewarding and reputation accountability that preserves users’ privacy using cryptocurrencies. Furthermore, we detailed an implementable system using bitcoins.
