On the basis of referenced studies on blockchain technology and the applicability of blockchain in supply chain management of agricultural products, the study analyzes the applicability of blockchain technology in melaleuca oil supply chain in Hue. The study applies both qualitative and quantitative research methods. The results of the qualitative research step help outline a new research framework with 6 groups of aspects to be assessed. Next, the study surveys 215 units/individuals involved in the melaleuca oil supply chain, the sample is selected by simple random method. The obtained results show that the groups of aspects related to readiness (REA), compatibility (COM), cooperatability (COO) and legal environment (LEG) are trickiest obstacles to the applicability of blockchain technology. In addition, the difference test shows that each group of units/individuals in the supply chain has different levels of readiness for the application of new technology.
