DESCRIPTIONBlockchain is one of the emerging technologies in the recent world and a lot of revolution and research has done based on distributed technology (1). Blockchain is a Technology that ensures network security, transparency, and visibility through a specific combination of characteristics such as decentralized structure, supplied notes and storage mechanism, consensus algorithm, smart contracting, and asymmetric encryption. Ph.D. Assistance serves as an external mentor to brainstorm your idea and translate that into a research model. Hiring a mentor or tutor is common and therefore let your research committee know about the same. We do not offer any writing services without the involvement of the researcher.

Introduction to Block chain technologyBlockchain and its implications on supply chain operations ChallengesFuture research scope Conclusion
Blockchain is the one of the emerging technologies in recent world and a lot of revolution and research has done based distributed technology.
B lockchain is a technology that ensures network security, transparency, and visibility through a specific combination of characteristics such as decentralized structure, supplied notes and storage mechanism, consensus algorithm, smart contracting, and asymmetric encryption.
In modern days, more and more research studies exploring the usages of blockchain in SC.
Blockchain is a decentralised digital public ledger that is distributed across the internet.
If the documents have been added, they can't be changed without affecting the previous records, making it extremely secure for business operations.
It can be used in a range of fields, such as creating smart contracts to monitor financial fraud or securely sharing medical records between healthcare professionals.
Blockchain and its Implications on Supply Chain Operations
Functionality, security, privacy, and cost are still barriers.
Along with transforming SCs across different industries, it also aids in enhancing the accessibility and security of existing digital networks, such as the Internet of Things (IoTs) and other Industry 4.0 projects.
Every industry has different requirements for privacy and security protection.
Blockchain can be structured in three ways to meet different needs: public, private, and hybrid.
Applications using b lockchain are increasing at a fast rate, but interoperability is a problem, leading to standardization issues.
Block chain integration with SC increases visibility across the entire value chain, reduces paperwork and human errors, ensures transparency amongst all parties, enhances security of data, complements IoTs, helps identify counterfeit products, and enables efficient traceability and management
The adoption of blockchain technology needs further research and exploration in more countries, markets, and companies in order to better understand the most critical factors that contribute to its success.
Here mentioned and listed potential study topics in a variety of major SC areas below:
BLOCKCHAIN ADOPTION AND IMPLEMENTATION
It is necessary to investigate howthe combination of blockchain technology and IoT can affect the SC's results.
Future research scope
Another requirement is to investigate whether a global standard forconnecting different blockchain platforms should be built.
SUPPLY CHAIN REENGINEERING
One of the most significant advantages of blockchain is that it connects allSC members to a single, stable network.
As blockchain is introduced in SCs, however, all relevant data will be exchanged and accessible by all SC partners.
Industry experts, researchers and SC managers must explore this issue.
SUPPLY CHAIN RESILIENCE
Natural disasters, strikes, virus outbreaks, and operational threats all cause disruptions and SC vulnerability, and managing the extreme impact and effects of such events on SC networks is often a challenge.
Following the COVID-19 pandemic, companies should reconsider and redesign their SC risk management and resilience strategies, putting a greater emphasis on digital networks driven by technologies such as blockchain, IoT, and quantum computing.
SUPPLY CHAIN COORDINATION
Effective blockchain implementation can be extremely beneficial and have many research implications for both i ndustry and academia.
The use of blockchain in SC can be investigated for global procurement, collaboration, and strategic alliances in foreign trades.
Smart contracts, which are based on supplied ledger technology, can be used to handle ownership transfers, cross-border exchanges, knowledge sharing, and international transactions without the use of intermediaries, among other things
As blockchain develops and becomes more widely used, ensuring security, especially for cryptocurrency, is critical.
To achieve its high efficiency, the blockchain architecture must also be combined with IoTs and cloud computing.
As a result, the respective blockchain-based system must be stable in order to ensure a low operational risk.
Customer authentication, data confidentiality and privacy, and integrity safety must be restored with the highest priority in areas such as healthcare SC, cab services, last mile in e-commerce, and other service sectors.
All these issues can be investigated in future research.
This article will Assist Researchers and practitioners in better understanding and identifying SC areas and industry sectors where blockchian technology can be applied.
Present developments, challenges, and possible research opportunities related to the use of blockchain for supply chain operations are also addressed.
