Blockchain is a technology with disruptive, transformative and even revolutionary power, but currently its application faces many barriers: technological, governance, organizations and societal. A significant amount of knowledge from both the blockchain and related fields is available, but there is currently no comprehensive application-ready methodology guiding organizations through their blockchain adoption journey. This publication provides a framework based on two fundamental concepts: inclusion of blockchain in current Enterprise architecture as a requisition of safe and nondisruptive adoption, and coverage of the whole Adoption lifecycle, rooted in dynamic nature of blockchain as an ecosystem technology. Furthermore, this work covers the concepts of Evolutionary and Revolutionary development of blockchain enabled solution.
