Abstract [en]

Since its inception about a decade ago, practitioners and researchers alike have been drawn to the blockchain technology vibe. Advocates of blockchain argue that the technology is taking us to truly ‘trust-free’ transactions. A long list of applications of blockchain has also been proposed in a relatively short period of time. However, a closer look into the literature reveals two shortcomings. To start with, the substantial proportion of the research on blockchain has focused on addressing the technical aspects of blockchain—design and features— as well as legal issues. However, there is a lack of knowledge on how blockchain technology can be used to solve practical problems faced by organizations in different sectors and industries—measurement and value, trust, management and organization. The state-of-the-art also shows that there is a dominance of conceptual and design-oriented research paradigms. To address this gap and respond to the calls for further research, this paper presents a research plan for a longitudinal case study to investigate whether blockchain technology can affect the way organizations conduct their business relationships.
