This paper is aimed at studying the enablement of supply chains by adopting blockchain technology. The implementation of blockchain in supply chain management can solve the current issues faced in the supply chain ecosystem. Supply chains are part and parcel of every business and have multiple inefficiencies in the system. Some of these inefficiencies can be managed by usage of blockchain Platform .Technology, Intra-organizational, Inter-Organizational, external factors, and innovation are critically evaluated for adoption of blockchain in supply chain. A pilot study is conducted in form survey for analysis of these factors. Hypotheses are derived for these factors for quantitative research. Subsequently these hypotheses are examined with the help of ADANCO2.3 for structural equation modelling. As an outcome, it is evident that Innovation and External factors are significantly impacting the adoption of blockchain in supply chain management.
