Title: Simulation of Blockchain-enabled Market for Supplier Capacity Trading among Competing Retailers

Abstract: We design a behavioral simulation using a blockchain-enabled market for trading suppliers’ capacities among competing retailers. Retailers have different valuations for goods and order before knowing their demand. After demand realization, retailers trade among each other to maximize profits. We find that initial order quantities decline when trading is allowed.
