As trade policy disruption has become more commonplace, so have the calls for blockchain as a solution.  But often the reasoning for this link has been unclear. Using the case study of Brexit as a baseline, we map four sources of trade-based uncertainty and explore the extent to which blockchain applications could – when implemented – attenuate supply chain disruption, which has lead to firms taking second best options like reducing investment and switching suppliers. Because the law has not kept pace with technology, the discussion also highlights prominent legal questions raised by blockchain in each instance.
