Abstract

This paper outlines our research on the opportunities and challenges of blockchain technology applied for sustainability purposes focusing particularly on the circular economy perspective. The work is based on in-depth semi-structured interviews with Finnish blockchain professionals. The results reinforce the hypothesis that blockchain technology is in many respects a potential technology for implementing sustainability and circular economy solutions. However, the results also highlight many challenges that are often non-technical.
