© 2019 IEEE.Blockchain technology provides emerging solutions including decentralized management, security, privacy and robustness. In Supply Chain Management (SCM) applications, blockchain technology enable us to increase customer satisfaction, operational excellence, and to decrease operational costs and risks. Despite of these significant benefits, there are limited number of studies that combines SCM and blockchain in the literature. The main aim of this study is to investigate the factors influencing the adoption and acceptance of the blockchain based SCM in organizations. To this end, a comprehensive systematic literature review is conducted and a research model based on Technology-Organization-Environment (TOE) framework is proposed. The proposed research model consists of factors of the relative advantage, complexity, interoperability/compatibility, standardization, trust and scalability in the context of technology; organization's IT resource, top management support, organization size and financial resources in the context of organization; competitive pressure, trading partner pressure, government policy and regulations and inter-organizational trust in the context of environment.
