The development of public display technology has been stagnant in the recent years, with its inherent security, scalability, and efficiency restrictions remaining unchanged. As our life experiences becomes increasingly digitised, there has been an interest surge in high-tech display networks that can deliver engaging media and interactable programmes such as arts, advertisements,
games, interactive artworks, promotional materials, and user-own content. Scalability in public displays is typically achieved by increasing the number of nodes and display deployment range. Admittedly, it is common in some regions of developing countries to have slow internet
connectivity and limited network coverage, limiting the displays to specific localations.

A novel public display architecture based on Ethereum smart contract technology and LoRa, low-power wide area networking (LPWAN) is proposed in this study; introducing advanced
peer-to-peer blockchain security, scalable IoT networking, and unique applications of smart contracts. In addition, another public display Wi-Fi networking prototype has been assembled with the intention of testing it for version comparison.

The study employs a design science research engineering method to develop, test and evaluate the public display system’s architecture. In the evaluation section of the study, a series of requirement and network tests were completed, where the obtained results are presented through
tables, diagrams, and a comprehensive discussion. The results of the study showed that the proposed public displays architecture, which functions on blockchain and LPWAN technology, disposes of the pre-existing drawbacks and introduces features such as media ownership, decentralised
data storage, advanced automation, and network communication transparency. The outcome of this study suggests that adaptation of smart contracts in existing applications would
provide numerous advantages; especially in game development, supply chain management, evoting, and healthcare.
