dc.description.abstract Blockchains play a crucial role in the digitalization of future supply chains (SCs). In this study, we analyzed the major influences that blockchain-based digital business strategies may play in SC operations. We conducted 18 interviews with international experts from different sectors and analyzed the collected data using the grounded theory approach, identifying four major categories. A set of three matrices is presented to address those elements that may support digital transition procedures in SCs: (1) value of trust and automation, (2) transformative role for operations, and (3) digital business strategy identification. As an additional result, a reference framework was identified for the evaluation and detection of those aspects to be taken into consideration during blockchain adoption in SCs. For use as a guide, this result comprises 22 recommendations and was framed in four progressive steps as follows: (1) identify, (2) assess, (3) design, and (4) assure.
