Groundbreakingly, blockchain technology (BCT) has gained widespread acceptance and importance in the last few years. Implemented in different areas of applications such as social and legal industries, finance, smart property, and supply chain networks. This technology assures immutability and integrity of data without the need of a third trusted party. Furthermore, BCT could guarantee a transparent and decentralized transaction system in businesses and industries. Even though general research has been done in the BCT, however, there is a lack of systematic analysis on current research challenges regarding how BCT is effectively applicable in supply chain management (SCM). A systematic literature review (SLR) of SCM based on blockchain does not exist yet. This work aims to explore and analyse the state-ofthe-art on the BCT applications for SCM. We synthesize existing evidence, and identify gaps, available in the literature. The survey uses a systematic mapping study (SMS) method to examine 40 extracted primary studies from scientific databases.
