This tutorial builds on the earlier work by Babich and Hilary (2019) and Babich and Hilary (2020) and updates the status of various applications of blockchain technology to supply chains. We present a revised framework for analyzing the value of blockchain applications, based on five strengths and the corresponding five weaknesses. We describe industry efforts to take advantage of these strengths and to address these weaknesses. We outline the main academic research themes and discuss examples of research questions.
