Abstract: The world transforms towards the intelligent information era by 2030. The key domains linked with human life such as healthcare, transport, entertainment, and smart cities expected to elevate the quality of service with high-end user experience. The telecommunication infrastructure has to accept the unprecedented compatibility standards to the connectivity of future systems such as extensive data rate and volume for the prominent future domains such as Augented Reality(AR), Virtual Reality (VR), Mixed Reality(MR), Machine to Machine (M2M) communication, Massive Input-Massive Output (MIMO), and massive Machine Type Communication (mMTC). There are significant challenges identifiable in the communication context in matching the future demand booms. The blockchain and distributed ledger technology is one of the most disruptive technology enabler to address most of the limitations and advance the functional standards of 6G. We explored the role of blockchain to address significant challenges in 6G, future application opportunities and research directions.
