In order to understand the applicability of Blockchain technology to Supply Chain, this paper reviews the available literature published within the AISNET’s basket of eight journals on the topic Blockchain and a list of selected top IS conferences. One observation in the results is that authors have been giving more importance to areas related to either fintech or cryptocurrencies. Nevertheless, other applications of blockchain technologies are being approached by these authors. Since the area of focus of this paper relates to Supply Chain, the refinement process of the results, consisted on filtering out those observations. Hence the approach consists on the research and review of all available publications with the utilization of a unique interpretation framework and focus on the avenues of research provided by these articles. Gathering information in order to create discussion debates, grouped by the unit of analysis identified, within Supply Chain.
