In this paper, an analysis is conducted on the data transmitted through the edge computing technique. The research creates a trust model that establishes direct, indirect, and mutual trust between the source and destination blocks when data is sent. That is, the study integrated blockchain as a model to transmit the data in a secured way through the blockchains, however, the intrusion in blockchains can be avoided based on trust based model. The simulation is conducted on various testbeds and with existing blockchain mechanisms. The findings reveal that the suggested trust-based paradigm is successful at safeguarding data sent over the edge.
