In this paper, we present a mobile intercloud system with blockchain by combining cloud computing, mobile computing and blockchain-based computing. Each mobile terminal is associated with a virtual terminal for performing mobile cloud computing and other functions. Virtual terminals, as well as data, programs and applications, can be moved across clouds. Furthermore, blockchains can be set up among virtual terminals for sharing data and files in a distributed manner (i.e., without using common servers). A prototype system focusing on the blockchain component has been developed. Performance analysis for the blockchain component is presented, which provides valuable insights into the development of the mobile intercloud system.
