Blockchain es una tecnología prometedora que tiene amplias aplicaciones en muchos campos incluyendo el contexto empresarial. El advenimiento de la tecnología blockchain viene con una serie de problemas y desafíos que complican su implementación. Esta tecnología ha cambiado por completo el concepto actual de centralización, utilizándose diferentes métodos para conectar y monitorear transacciones en tecnología blockchain en aspectos como la descentralización, la inmutabilidad, la transparencia y la comunicación entre pares, los cuales ayudan a responder de manera efectiva a las tendencias actuales. El propósito del presente documento es realizar un progreso académico planteando las aplicaciones del blockchain en el ámbito empresarial, para tal fin, se realizó una investigación bibliométrica usando la base de datos bibliográfica de artículos de revistas científicas Scopus. Se analizaron registros bibliográficos y los principales hallazgos fueron que en los últimos 5 años se han mostrado un incremento en la producción científica de la temática en su conjunto así como aplicaciones en el campo de la medicina, sector asegurador, bancario, transaccional entre muchos otra. Finalmente se abordaron limitaciones y futuras líneas de investigación.

Blockchain is a promising technology that has broad applications in many fields including the business context. The advent of blockchain technology comes with a number of issues and challenges that complicate its implementation. This technology has completely changed the current concept of centralisation, using different methods to connect and monitor transactions in blockchain technology in aspects such as decentralisation, immutability, transparency and peer-to-peer communication, which help to effectively respond to current trends. The purpose of this paper is to make an academic progress by considering the applications of blockchain in the business environment, for this purpose, a bibliometric research was conducted using the bibliographic database of scientific journal articles Scopus. Bibliographic records were analysed and the main findings were that in the last 5 years there has been an increase in the scientific production of the subject as a whole as well as applications in the field of medicine, insurance, banking, transactional and many others. Finally, limitations and future lines of research were addressed.
