The blockchain-enabled wireless Internet of medical things (IoMT) system has recently drawn extensive attention due to the provision of highly-secured healthcare services. However, multiple simultaneous transmissions in blockchain-enabled IoMT (BC-IoMT) networks can cause interference, consequently degrading the overall performance of the system. It is necessary to investigate the performance of BC-IoMT networks. In this paper, we propose a novel analytical framework for wireless BCIoMT networks with consideration of both the spatial model on geographical random distribution of IoMT users and the temporal model on stochastic nature of data block transmission. With this framework, we derive a closed-form expression of the coverage probability in the wireless BC-IoMT network. Our extensive simulation results verify the accuracy of our theoretical analysis. From the analytical framework, we find that the path loss effect, the number of interfering medical sensor devices, and the threshold of successful transmission have a significant impact on the coverage performance of wireless BC-IoMT networks.
