The article aims to look at existing blockchain conversion models in VANET environments. The analysis in the article aims to highlight the advantages and disadvantages of using blockchain for securing message exchange in VANET. From the parallel comparison of blockchain consensus Proof of Work and Proof of Authority, the two main approaches are outlined: The PoA has emerged as a lighter and more fast consensus, while using PoW will require the use of cloud services to export heavy consensus calculations to MeC (Mobile Edge Computing).
